Tuition and Financial Aid
The cost of attendance for the College of Medicine can be found on the Drexel Central website.
Financing a medical education requires a great deal of planning and knowledge about resources. Students are encouraged to begin looking at the financial responsibilities of medical school as early as possible. At the College of Medicine, approximately 93 percent of our students receive financial assistance. The staff of Drexel Central provides confidential counseling to all students as well as information about financial resources for which they are eligible. Additionally, the College of Medicine has a financial planner on staff full time to assist all students and their families with counseling and financial planning during and after their medical school years. This service is designed to address the student's entire financial picture beyond financial aid so as to stay on track as they pursue their education, residency and practice.

The College of Medicine administers a variety of programs that offer loans, grants and work opportunities. In order to be considered for financial aid, students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information from the FAFSA feeds into a financial model used by the federal government to calculate each student's and family's contribution to expenses.
With this information, Drexel Central determines the distributions of funds, most of which are loans from federal and state programs. Limited scholarships are available from the College of Medicine and private foundations. Private-source loans can also be arranged. Many students take advantage of jobs obtained through our work-study program.
