THE OFFICE OF STUDENT FINANCIAL SERVICES

The Office of Student Financial Services is available to assist students with finding the financial resources needed to achieve their educational goals. While the primary responsibility for meeting educational costs rests with the student, the Office of Student Financial Services can help students bridge the gap between the cost of their education and their own financial resources.

The Office of Student Financial Services at RVU is committed to the highest standards of professional conduct. Their goal is to provide information and advice, determined solely by the best interests of our students. A copy of the Financial Aid Code of Conduct can be found on this webpage.

Current students finance their educational costs with a combination of federal and private loans, scholarships, and their own resources. The financial ability of applicants to complete their education at the University is important because of the limited number of seats available in each class. Applicants should have specific plans for financing each year of education, which include tuition; fees; living expenses; books; equipment; clinical externship travel; expenses related to taking COMLEX, USMLE exams, or other professional examinations; and miscellaneous expenses.

The Office of Student Financial Services will communicate financial aid information and awards to individual students by electronic means. Any student who wishes to receive paper copies of award letters or other financial aid correspondence may opt out of electronic communications by providing a written request to the Office of Student Financial Services.

General Eligibility Requirements

To qualify for most types of federal student aid, you must:

  • Be an accepted RVU student.
  • Be degree-seeking.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
  • Be enrolled at least half-time.
  • Have a valid social security number
  • Make satisfactory academic progress, as defined by RVU and the Department of Education, towards the completion of your degree.
  • Register with selective service, if required.
  • Not be in default on a federal student loan and not owe money back on a federal student grant.
Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the cost of attending RVU and maintaining a modest but adequate standard living. The COA includes tuition, fees, books, supplies, health insurance, living expenses, transportation and miscellaneous costs. The COA varies by year in school and is updated annually.

Students are strongly encouraged to complete a personal budget and only borrow the minimum amount needed to cover their actual costs. Many RVUCOM students are able to live on less than the COA by budgeting carefully and reducing their expenses for room, board, personal and transportation costs. Note that the COA does not include living expenses for a student’s spouse or other dependents.

Total loan amounts borrowed and scholarships awarded cannot exceed the COA minus any other aid received.

RESOURCES

Students who wish to apply for a loan must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. RVU students are strongly encouraged to complete their FAFSA prior to April 1st. From there, the Office of Student Financial Services will determine the financial aid eligibility for each student annually.

The University and the RVU Alumni Association offer several scholarships to incoming students each year. These scholarships are offered in the form of partial tuition waivers. Scholarship information and applications are available annually, during the spring prior to matriculation.

Federal and private educational loans are available to graduate students. Students receiving loans for the first time must complete loan entrance counseling and  Master Promissory Note before any funds will be disbursed.
