Financial Aid

Information and resources for prospective students

To be eligible for full financial consideration, applicants must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by January 15 of each year​​. The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.​

The Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program (both unsubsidized and Graduate Plus loans), and the University of Washington School of Medicine Loan are the primary sources of aid. Washington residents who apply on time will be considered for Graduate University Grant and Graduate Tuition Exemption. Parental information must be included on the FAFSA for a student to be considered for the UW School of Medicine scholarship and Title VII aid.

The UW School of Medicine scholarship is need-based and requires financial information from the student and parents.

The UW School of Medicine Financial Aid office works specifically with UW medical students and applicants to UWSOM. This office not only acts as a liaison with the main UW Financial Aid office but caters to the unique financial questions and issues relating to medical school.

Financial aid process and types


The UWSOM's Financial Aid office is located in the Health Sciences building on the fifth floor of the T-wing, room T-557. There are two staff members who serve as liaisons for medical students to the main UW Financial Aid office. Diane Noecker serves as Director and is responsible for administering the School's scholarship and loan funds and the Title VII federal aid programs. Tabitha Fletcher is the Financial Aid Program Coordinator.

General advice on financial aid, questions about the aid awarded and assistance with understanding the impact of indebtedness are among some of the important issues that you can discuss with those in the office.

All students, including those at a regional first-year site or a clinical rotation site outside of Seattle, are encouraged to contact the UWSOM Financial Aid staff with questions regarding their aid or financial needs relating to medical school. We encourage students and applicants to use somfao@uw.edu for inquiries. This e-mail is checked frequently; however, during times of high volume it may take several days to receive a response.


All financial aid forms are available in the Financial Aid office and should be submitted back to the UW School of Medicine Financial Aid office in T-557.

  • Release of Informa​tion - This online form can be completed via a student's MyUW account and is only required if a student wishes to give another person permission to discuss the student's financial aid record with financial aid personnel. Permission must be resubmitted annually. 
  • UWSOM Financial Aid - Revision Request Regarding a Change in Financial Situation
    Check with SOM Financial Aid office to determine if you need to fill out this form.
  • UWSOM Financial Aid - Revision Request for Additional Expenses
    Available by request in the Financial Aid office or by emailing somfao@uw.edu. 

The following forms should only be submitted if requested by the main Office of Student Financial Aid or the UW School of Medicine Financial Aid Office. You can find them under Graduate & Professional Forms; select the 'Verification' tab.

  • Asset Summary​ Worksheet - Student 
  • Expense Resource Worksheet - Independent Student 
  • Household Size - Student 
  • Income Exclusion Worksheet - Student 
  • Non-Taxable Income Worksheet - Student​ 


The University of Washington FAFSA priority deadline is January 15. The financial aid priority deadline applies regardless of admission status, and prospective students can file their FAFSA starting October 1. Students applying for a UWSOM scholarship are required to provide parental information on their FAFSA regardless of age, marital status or independent status. Providing parental information will not affect eligibility for a student's standard loan package. A financial aid award will generally consist of a combination of Direct Stafford Unsubsidized loans and Graduate Plus (Gplus) loans. Parental information may also be required, however, to determine eligibility for Primary Care Loans, Loan for Disadvantaged Students and Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students - students will be notified if they are eligible.

University of Washington FAFSA School Code: 003798. 

APPLY


The School of Medicine’s need-based scholarship application is now open for 2020-2021. The deadline is April 30th each year. Incoming students who are admitted after the deadline should contact us and we will work with you to ensure you can still submit your information. You must include parental information for 2018 when you submit your FAFSA if you are applying for this scholarship. If you have already submitted your FAFSA, you can go back and add parent information later without losing your initial submission date. Scholarships will be determined by mid Fall quarter 2020. Recipients will receive an e-mail notifying them if they qualify.

How to Apply:

  • Read the entire Application Packet PDF
  • Include parent information on the 2020-21 FAFSA regardless of student age or marital status*
  • Submit scholarship application survey*
  • Submit 2018 parent federal tax returns via an Information Update*
  • Optional: Bio-sketch*

*Links and more information contained in Application Packet PDF

Gaining Residency Status (Non-WWAMI out of region students)

Out of region students (those who are not in one of the WWAMI states) may apply for residency status in Washington State after demonstrating a year of primary residency in Washington State. If a student is not approved for residency, they will continue to pay non-resident tuition.

VA Benefits

If you are a veteran eligible for VA benefits, you can find information specific to you at their office in the Veteran's Center.

Budget Adjustments

The budget may be increased for computer (Laptop only)/pda (up to $3000), health insurance (student only), childcare or a dependent allowance. These costs may only be covered during the quarters students are enrolled, and may result in students needing the higher interest Graduate Plus loans. Forms are available in T-557, or e-mail somfao@uw.edu.

The budget cannot be increased to cover credit card debt, mortgage payments above room/board expenses already in budget, car payments, or costs related to applying to medical school or residency programs (application fees/interview costs/moving/travel). If student expenses are less than what is in the budget, they are encouraged to take out less.
