Frequently Asked Questions


How much is tuition at PCOM?

Visit our cost of attendance pages to view estimated costs for each program.

Does my parents' income affect my financial aid eligibility as a graduate student?

As a graduate or medical student, you are considered to be an independent student on the FAFSA. Graduate and medical students are not required to record their parents' income information on the FAFSA to be eligible for Federal student loans.

However, if you wish to be considered for PCOM's financial need scholarships, PCOM requires students to record your parent information on the FAFSA if you are age 26 and younger as of December 31 of this calendar year. If you are 27 and older as of January 1 of next year, parent information is not required on the FAFSA to be considered for PCOM’s financial need scholarships.

Learn more about PCOM's various scholarships and how to apply for financial aid.

How do I find out about scholarships and eligibility?

Visit our scholarships page to learn about various institutional and private scholarship resources available to students.

Does the amount of aid I received as an undergraduate affect my aid as a graduate student?

No. In general, the graduate or medical student financial aid process is different from undergraduate aid. Your financial aid awards from undergraduate will not affect your graduate or medical student financial aid awards.

Does PCOM offer religious accommodations?

Yes, PCOM may offer religious accommodations.

PCOM acknowledges respect for the religious diversity of PCOM students by providing opportunities, where possible, for accommodation in cases where conflicts exist between students' religious beliefs/practices and educational activities. Such accommodations must honor, where applicable, the primacy of a commitment to patient care and not unduly burden faculty or disproportionately affect the general student population involved in the affected educational activity, while ensuring that the requirements of the prescribed curriculum are upheld.
