The US Department of Education offers Title IV federal loans to eligible students to help cover the cost of education through the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. Direct Unsubsidized Loans are a guaranteed source of funding to meet a student’s Cost of Attendance. Additionally, the Direct Loan Grad PLUS Loan meets remaining gaps in a student’s Cost of Attendance.
Other types of loans through Title VII or the US Department of Health and Human Services, including the Federal Primary Care Loan (PCL) and the Loans to Disadvantaged Students (LDS), are available to help fund the cost of medical school education for those who meet the qualifications. Financial information submitted on the FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for all federal loan programs.
