Financing Your Degree

UT Southwestern is one of the most affordable medical schools in the country. In addition, the cost of living in Dallas is lower than many other major cities with medical school programs. In addition to scholarships, we highly encourage students to apply for other types of aid, specifically by filing the FAFSA annually. Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff works directly with students to secure all available funding for their medical education.

If borrowing is necessary, UT Southwestern can help you select the most advantageous and fiscally responsible loan programs. Many out-of-state students are offered a competitive scholarship, which also entitles them to pay tuition at the much lower in-state rate.
