Financial Aid and Cost of Study

Students are urged to apply for applicable Federal and State financial aid programs. Students should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on or after January 1.  Financial aid materials will be made available to those students who are offered admission. Visit the Health Sciences Financial Aid Office website to get more information on fees, budget, important dates, and FAQ's.

National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)

The Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences strongly recommends that each applicant access the National Student Loan Data System prior to applying. This system allows you to view your student aid records including student loans and grants. This tracking system includes data from the time when your aid has been approved through when you pay off your loans. It displays your outstanding balances, your loan status, and loan amounts you receive. Both student and parent borrowers can use the system. Please check out your Federal Student Loan status prior to application.

Grants and Scholarships

Once a student matriculates, there will be several opportunities for them to apply for scholarships and grants.  Additionally something NEW is that we will be offering recruitment scholarships to some applicants at the time of offer.  More information will be provided about recruitment scholarships during the interview.
