Financial Aid Information
Financial assistance may be available to students in the Office of Professional Studies in the Health Sciences programs through loans such as the Stafford Student Loan and alternative loans. The Perkins Loan may be available to students during the second year of study. Work-study programs may also be available.
Acceptances are offered on a rolling admissions basis. This may not allow enough time to apply to and receive funds from the various loan programs to meet tuition costs when registering for class. Therefore, students must be prepared to meet the initial financial needs for the first semester (tuition and living expenses) out of available funds until potential loans are processed.
Students are encouraged to expedite the financial aid process by submitting a FAFSA form by the University deadline of May 1. The FAFSA code for the University is 003256.
