Financial Assistance

All financial aid is handled through the University of Washington and is based on the demonstrated financial need of the student. All applicants for aid from the school must submit data for an analysis of need on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This requires full disclosure of resources available to the student from individual and family sources. To be eligible for full financial aid consideration, a student must submit the FAFSA on time regardless of whether he/she has been accepted to the schools listed on the FAFSA. The UW deadline is generally near the end of February of the year of matriculation. Outside employment is discouraged while the student is enrolled in the curriculum. Further information and application forms for financial aid may be obtained from the University of Washington School of Medicine Financial Aid Office.
