Medical School Financial Aid
Attending medical school requires a major financial commitment. Ross University School of Medicine is committed to providing medical school applicants and active medical students with information to help you fund your education through student loan programs, medical school financial aid, and scholarships.
Financial aid is available to all eligible students. It is intended to fill the gap that may exist between your family's ability to afford educational expenses and the cost of attendance. Typically, students at Ross finance the cost of their education by combining family resources, federal student loans, and scholarships, and loans from other sources. Approximately 85% of Ross students receive some assistance.
MEDICAL SCHOOL STUDENT LOANS
Students accepted for admission to Ross, and active students maintaining standards of satisfactory academic progress, may apply for student loans through either government or private programs to meet direct and indirect educational expenses. The maximum loan amount for which a student is eligible may not exceed the cost of attendance (as defined by Ross University School of Medicine) for the academic period in which the student is enrolled. Families should make every possible effort to attain the needed resources for education.
FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN PROGRAM
Ross University School of Medicine is approved for participation in the William D. Ford Federal Loan Program (Direct Loans). Students who wish to participate are required to complete the Free Appplication for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Ross has staff dedicated to providing financial counseling in order to promote financial awareness, advise students on repayment and debt forgiveness options, inform students of scholarship opportunities, and encourage responsible borrowing.
