Financing Medical School
Managing the cost of medical school
Student loans can help you manage the cost of medical school tuition, supplies and living expense.
Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
The Unsubsidized Stafford Loan is available to all students regardless of income or credit. This loan is not subsidized by the federal government. You are responsible for all interest that accrues while you are in school, in deferment or during your grace period. You may choose to make interest payments while in school or defer (and accumulate) the interest until repayment.
Graduate PLUS Loans
The Grad PLUS loan is available to medical students who have already borrowed the maximum amount of Stafford Loans and still need additional funding.
Primary Care Loans
The Primary Care Loan program provides long-term, low-interest-rate loans to full-time, financially needy students to pursue a degree in allopathic or osteopathic medicine.
Loans for Disadvantaged Students
The Loans for Disadvantaged Students program provides long-term, low interest rate loans to full-time students who need financial assistance to pursue a degree in medicine.
The Emergency Loan program is available to assist all enrolled Heritage College students with short-term funding for unexpected financial problems.
