What Our Students Say

"My one-on-one virtual meeting with financial aid was incredibly helpful in planning my loan repayment strategy for the next stages of my career as a resident physician. I'm so grateful they were able to set aside specialized, individual time to help me and answer my situation-specific questions!"

Briana Krewson

"PCOM financial aid helped me to better understand my loan repayment strategies and the lectures they provided were helpful for providing brief introductions to financial topics we wouldn't otherwise learn about in our classes. It was helpful to have a one-on-one meeting with financial aid to discuss my personal loans and repayment strategies."

Beverley Kozuch

"The exit counseling was incredibly helpful! [Financial aid personnel] were very knowledgeable and patient with answering all of my questions about the loan repayment process. Highly recommend!"

Erika Foerst

"The financial aid advisor I met with was very calming and reassuring when I approached her about stress concerning my loans. She helped me get set up with a work study position and helped me understand how best to manage my loans currently as a student and then how I can tackle them as a graduate."
