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.

Additionally, PCOM does not require students to record parent information on the FAFSA to be considered for the College's financial need scholarships.

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.

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.
