UTRGV SOM students have the option of applying for financial aid. Financial aid is available in several forms: federal loans, scholarships, and private loans.
Students interested in applying for financial aid are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible.
The Cost of Attendance includes tuition, fees, required purchases for designated years of medical schools, and estimated living expenses.
Students may have the option to defer the repayment of previously-acquired loans from other institutions of higher education. Students are encouraged to check with the lenders. Enrollment verifications are available online as needed. Additionally, UTRGV verifies student enrollment automatically to several lenders in an effort to expedite enrollment verification and the deferment process.
