Physician Assistant Program - International Students

Below you will see an overview of the financial aid application process for incoming international students in the Physician Assistant Program.

Deadline

Return all completed application materials by May 1, 2018.

Importance of meeting deadlines

Meeting the financial aid application deadlines listed above ensures that students will receive their financial aid award notice, can complete all required loan documentation, and have their funds disburse by the first day of classes. Students who may be admitted after the application deadline are still eligible to apply for and receive financial aid, but they must submit their financial aid application materials within two weeks of when they were admitted.

Students who apply for financial aid after the deadline cannot be guaranteed that financial aid funds will disburse by the first day of class. Applications received after the deadline will be processed in the order in which they were received.

Financial aid applications may not be processed once a term has ended (in other words, students may not be eligible to receive funds for the Summer term if they apply for those funds during the Winter term).
