Medical School Financial Aid

Funding Your Medical Education

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine is committed to providing medical students with information to help them fund their education through student loan programs and medical school financial aid.

Federal Direct Loan Program

AUC is approved for participation in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (Direct Loans). Students who wish to participate are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Graduate/professional level students are considered independent by federal regulations for the Direct Loans; therefore it is not necessary to supply parental information. AUC’s school code for completing the FAFSA form is G22444.

Qualified citizens and permanent residents of the United States may be eligible to receive medical school financial aid from the Direct Loan programs up to the cost of attendance (tuition, books & supplies, accommodation and travel).
 

Canadian Students

Canadian students should consult with their province regarding Caribbean medical school financial aid resources available to them.
 

Veterans

Veterans and their dependents may receive funding per the eligibility requirements set by the Veteran’s Administration.  Contact the VA at 1-888-442-4551.
 

Exit Counseling

Recipients of U.S. federal student loans must complete an exit counseling session prior to graduation, separation or less than half-time attendance. Loans will be summarized and terms of repayment, deferment, and responsibility will be reviewed. Student borrowers are awarded loan funds to pay for their education on the basis of a promise to repay after leaving school. Failure to do so can result in adverse consequences.
