Applying for Financial Aid
Financing your health profession education may be one of your top concerns. Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, you may have many options: scholarships, grants, work-study and loans.
Our goal? Helping students and their families find the best way to finance a UNMC education. In fact, about 90 percent of our students receive some type of financial aid.
To be eligible for federal student financial aid you must:
- Be accepted as a regular student in a UNMC degree or certificate granting program.
- Be registered for at least half-time (6 hours-undergraduate, 4 hours-graduate) each semester during the academic year. Correspondence courses do not count as eligible credit hours for financial aid. Enrollment at institutions other than the University of Nebraska do not count toward enrollment for financial aid at UNMC.
- Students enrolled as degree seeking students through the University of Nebraska Medical Center may be required, by their academic program, to take several classes through the Division of Continuing Education. The cost of CE tuition can be funded in your financial aid package, if you provide documentation of the cost. The credit hours count toward full time enrollment for increased Pell Grant and loan eligibility, however do not count toward enrollment for loan deferments.
- Not be in default on any federal student loans, and not owe repayment on any federal student grants.
- You must be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law which provides that an institution will maintain confidentiality of student education records. The University of Nebraska Medical Center accords all rights under the law to students who have reached the age of majority (Nebraska, age 19). No one outside the University shall have access to nor will the University disclose any information from a student's education record without the written consent of the student. The Office of Financial Aid will not disclose financial aid information to anyone outside the University without your written consent. PLEASE share this information with your family members.
UNMC does not participate in the option of providing guest access to PeopleSoft or other UNMC student information systems We will gladly discuss your financial aid with your FERPA designated representative. However, guests will not be permitted access to PeopleSoft to complete tasks on your behalf.
