Federal Direct Loans, Private Loans & FAFSA

Postbaccalaureate Pre-Medical / Pre-Health Program students enrolled at least half-time (6 credits per term) are eligible for federal direct loans for one consecutive 12-month period, provided they have not already borrowed the maximum amount allowed*.

The most that Postbac Premed students can borrow each academic year is $12,500 if one has never borrowed before, and may be less if the student has prior borrowing history. The estimated cost of the entire Postbaccalaureate Program can range from $22,000 to $29,000 depending upon course selection.Private loans are also available to students who have met their federal loan limit.
