Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid
Federal School Code 042629
The Office of Financial Aid approaches the financing of medical education in a holistic way that is consistent with the institution’s mission, purpose, and values. The information, programs, and services we provide are accurate, unbiased, without prejudice or personal gain, and compliant with all other institutional policies and procedures to the best of our knowledge and ability.
One of the most important decisions that students make is choosing how to finance their education. Our goal is to ensure that applicants and students have the information, tools, and resources necessary to achieve lifelong educational and career success.
Students accepted to, or enrolled in, degree-seeking programs are eligible to apply for financial aid. Certificate programs are not currently approved for financial aid. Study abroad programs are not offered at WMed.
For all degree-seeking programs, our office administers federal Direct Unsubsidized and Grad PLUS loans, private/alternative loans, external scholarships, and third-party financial assistance programs, such as veteran's benefits.
For the MD degree program, we administer institutional merit- and need-based scholarships, endowed scholarships, the Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Programs (HPSP), and the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Scholarship Program.
We provide services, information, and counseling to assist students as they navigate their financial aid options in the areas of:
- Applying for financial aid and the financial aid process
- Exploring sources of funding
- Budgeting and money management techniques
- Debt and loan management
- Personal financial concerns
We help students maintain their financial wellness by making tools, resources and qualified individuals available throughout medical school to provide personalized assistance. The financial wellness program is part of the medical school curriculum under the competency of Personal Management and Self-Care.
