Important Information for Medical Students Concerning Tuition
The University of Utah School of Medicine will not allow students who begin their medical studies with a non-resident classification to be reclassified. These students will maintain non-resident status and will pay tuition at the non-resident rate for the full duration of their medical school education.
Students must be certified through Idaho State University as residents of Idaho prior to applying. Accepted students pay Utah resident tuition. Students also pay a surcharge to a fund administered by the state of Idaho that is designed to assist in loan repayment for graduates who return to practice primary care in Idaho. Information about this program is available at Idaho State University website or calling (208) 282-2475.
Note: If you have completed a residency certification for the WWAMI program, the University of Idaho will provide a copy of your certification to Idaho State University for verification for the University of Utah School of Medicine. Students only need to submit a residency certification through one institution.
