“How much is medical school per year?”
This question, and others about how much medical school costs, are among the first things that pop into many prospective students' heads. In fact, thinking about medical school tuition can be enough to stop many students from applying, since many get overwhelmed by how much medical school tuition costs.
Yes, medical school tuition can be a lot, but medical school is a major investment in your future. To help offset the cost, scholarships and financial aid are available to eligible students, which is intended to fill any gaps that may exist between your family’s ability to afford educational expenses and the cost of attendance. Typically, students at RUSM finance their medical school costs by combining family resources, federal student loans and scholarships, and loans from other sources.
To qualify for scholarships for the January 2021 session, please apply by December 15.

Medical school TUITION REFUND POLICY FOR WITHDRAWALS
A withdrawal occurs when a student's enrollment is permanently discontinued or, in some cases, even temporarily interrupted (see Note below). Withdrawal may be official (when the student notifies the dean in writing) or unofficial (without written notification). The effective date of withdrawal is normally the student's last date of attendance.
- If a student withdraws, Ross University School of Medicine’s tuition and charges corresponds with federal loan entitlement regulations, which are based on the period attended:
- If a new student withdraws prior to the start of the first semester, no med school costs are due.
- If a continuing student withdraws prior to the start of a semester, no med school costs are due.
- If a student withdraws during the first 60% of a semester, no med school costs are directly prorated based on the portion of the semester that has elapsed. (As semesters are normally 15 weeks in length, tuition is prorated for withdrawals during weeks 1 through 9.)
- If a student withdraws after the first 60% (i.e., after completing the 9th week) of a semester, full medical school charges remain due.
Note: Although a leave of absence may be authorized in limited circumstances, failure to return to the University from a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance. Please note that a leave of absence and an academic leave of absence are two different statuses. (For an explanation of an academic leave of absence, refer to the section on Academic Policies in the Student Handbook). Additionally, under federal regulations, a leave of absence must be requested and approved in advance, may not exceed 180 days, and may not be granted within 12 months of a previous leave of absence. An interruption of enrollment status that does not qualify as a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance
