Cost of Attendance Budget Components

Cost of attendance is an estimate of a student’s expenses based on federally established guidelines. This includes the direct costs of tuition and a matriculation fee, and indirect cost estimations based on student survey data of living and other expenses that do not appear on a bill. Actual costs may differ.

If you are a student living in housing on a military base or for which you receive a basic allowance under section 403(b) of title 37 of the United States Code, please contact SEAM to discuss how this may affect your cost of attendance.

Students with special circumstances for unanticipated expenses (see the FA-Budget Adjustment Request Form for examples) can request a budget adjustment to their cost of attendance that may allow for additional federal loan borrowing eligibility.

Financial Aid

We realize that the cost of attending a full-time post-baccalaureate premedical program is expensive. A specific financial aid officer will work with you to help you plan and manage the expenses associated with attending the program. Options are available to cover the total cost of attendance, including living expenses.

For more information regarding financial aid and to consult with a financial aid officer, please visit the Office of Student Enrollment and Account Management website.

VA Education Benefits

At this time, the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program does not qualify for VA education benefits. The VA is currently reviewing the program to determine eligibility, and we will provide an update should the program be approved.
