About Financial Aid
The Penn State College of Medicine Office of Student Aid is committed to assisting our students in making informed choices about paying for their medical education. Although the primary financial responsibility for a medical education belongs to the student, there are financial sources that can be explored if financial assistance is necessary. The student aid office provides assistance and counseling to help students understand the financial resources available to them and how to obtain such resources.
The primary application for obtaining financial assistance at the Penn State College of Medicine is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our federal student code is 003329.
