The School of Medicine is a privately-owned institution. As such, state residency is not a determinant in tuition rates. Tuition and required fees for the 2018-2019 school year will be $57,980. Funding sources include an applicant’s education savings; contributions from family members, friends, church, employer, etc.; private scholarships the applicant has applied for and been selected to receive; federal grants/loans such as Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans; National Health Service Corps scholarships; United States Armed Forces scholarships (service commitment requirement); institutional grants/loans; and private student loans. An online search for medical student scholarships may also be of value.
