Students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible each year.
The FAFSA is available each year on January 1. If the student filed a FAFSA for the previous year, the Renewal FAFSA can be easily submitted at www.fafsa.ed.gov. List the University of Central Florida (Title IV Code: 003954) as a school of choice and note that the student anticipates attendance in the M.D. program. There is no separate code for the College of Medicine. Submit the FAFSA by March 1 each year even if acceptance into the M.D. program is not known by that date.
Students may be asked to complete additional paperwork at the appropriate time. The required documentation will depend on factors, such as:
Once accepted to the UCF College of Medicine and beginning in April, students will receive an official Financial Aid Award Letter. Students may accept or decline any aid that is offered, and please keep in mind that accepting aid does not obligate students to enroll at UCF. It simply “holds” the money for them.
During the Orientation Week, each enrolled student will have the opportunity to meet with Student Financial Services to discuss budgeting, financial concerns and questions.
