All applicants
Financial aid is awarded on an academic year basis. Our application deadline for the 2017-2018 academic year is March 31st, 2017. Late applications will be considered for institutional funding on a funds-available basis, however, your federal student aid eligibility is not negatively impacted if you miss the deadline. Students are responsible for meeting bill payment due dates and for late fees regardless of whether they have financial aid eligibility available to them on those dates.

New applicants
Please do not wait until you are admitted to apply for financial assistance. Having a complete financial aid application on file when you are admitted ensures that we will be able to review your application quickly and notify you of your eligibility shortly after your admission.

Continuing applicants
The Office of Financial Aid will be in touch with you each December to notify you when application materials for the next academic year are available. Application forms are sent out via email attachment, and are also available on this webpage via the link in the left sidebar.

How do I apply for aid?
Complete the applications listed on the "Forms and Applications" page as appropriate for your program and submit the supplemental documents listed in the application instructions.

Who may apply?
Students whose cost of attendance exceeds their family resources are encouraged to apply for financial aid. However, applicants who meet the following requirements may be eligible to receive federal financial aid if they are: 1) accepted or enrolled at TUSM on at least a half-time basis, 2) meeting standards of academic standard progress, 3) a citizen of the United States or an eligible non-citizen, 4) NOT in default with prior student loans, 5) compliant with requirements of Selective Service Registration (male students) and 6) have no prior drug convictions during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving Title IV aid.

Renewal of eligibility
Students are required to apply for financial aid each academic year and eligibility is determined for all financial aid programs available. Components of a student's aid package may vary from year to year due to changes in financial circumstances, late applications, changes in program regulations, and/or funds available.

International Students
No federal or institutional funds are available to international students. However, private loans may be secured with an eligible co-signer. The Office of Financial Aid would be happy to assist international students with questions pertaining to private loans.
