Financial Aid


Financing your health profession education may be one of your top concerns. Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, you may have many options: scholarships, grants, work-study and loans.

Our goal? Helping students and their families find the best way to finance a UNMC education. In fact, about 90 percent of our students receive some type of financial aid.

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law which provides that an institution will maintain confidentiality of student education records. The University of Nebraska Medical Center accords all rights under the law to students who have reached the age of majority (Nebraska, age 19). No one outside the University shall have access to nor will the University disclose any information from a student's education record without the written consent of the student. The Office of Financial Aid will not disclose financial aid information to anyone outside the University without your written consent. PLEASE share this information with your family members.

UNMC does not participate in the option of providing guest access to PeopleSoft or other UNMC student information systems. We will gladly discuss your financial aid with your FERPA designated representative. However, guests will not be permitted access to PeopleSoft to complete tasks on your behalf.

Throughout the aid process, you will be referred to this web site to complete several processes. Many of these processes will require the completion of UNMC forms.  Please do not complete documents until you are instructed, by our office, to do so. We will not retain documents that have not been required or requested.

If you have questions regarding the Financial Aid process, please refer to the UNMC Financial Aid Contact List.

UNMC is required, by federal regulation, to publish the Code of Conduct for UNMC Financial Aid Staff.
