For priority consideration of institutional scholarships, students should submit the Application for Financial Assistance to the Office of Student Financial Services by May 31. Applications received after May 31 will be kept on file for consideration if additional scholarship funds become available during the academic year.
Students applying for institutional, state or federal loans and scholarships based partly or solely on financial need must submit the FAFSA application, including the sections regarding parental finances regardless of the student’s age or independency status. First time FAFSA applicants need to apply for a PIN. The PIN is important because it serves as an electronic signature and streamlines the FAFSA submission process. Students who previously filed a FAFSA electronically, whether for undergraduate school or a previous year of medical school, should use the same PIN when completing a new FAFSA.
The parental information on the FAFSA is used to calculate a parental contribution; the parental contribution and the student’s ability to contribute is taken into consideration when awarding institutional funds. If both parents are deceased, copies of the death certificates must be submitted to the school in order to waive the parental information requirement. Submissions may be made as early as January 1 to begin the financial aid process for the subsequent academic year.
Indiana State Deadline: March 10
School Priority Date: May 1
Federal Deadline: June 30
The Federal School Code, also known as the Title IV Code, for IUPUI/IU School of Medicine is 001813 and must be included on the FAFSA for the school to receive the applicant’s FAFSA data.
Students applying for Federal Direct Loans for the first-time must complete a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN). The MPN is a binding legal document that lists the terms and conditions of repayment and explains the borrower’s rights and responsibilities. The MPN is only completed once in the four years of medical school. Borrowers are notified when the MPN is ready for completion online.
