New Students - How to Apply for Financial Aid
To be considered for financial aid and scholarships at UNMC, you must complete the:
UNMC Scholarship Application. You will need your UNMC ID and password to log into PeopleSoft to complete the on-line application. If you have not received your UNMC ID and password, please contact your academic program to determine when this information will be provided to you.
This application serves as your Scholarship Application for the entire length of your UNMC program. The Office of Financial Aid does not award 'renewable' scholarships. Scholarship eligibility is determined each year based on your prior year academic performance, leadership skills, and donor specific criteria (i.e., junior medical student, senior nursing student). If a UNMC Scholarship Application is not on file, your name will be included on scholarship rosters, however, your program may not consider you for scholarship without an application being on file. Additionally, the UNMC Scholarship Application collects donor specific criteria that is not collected on other application materials.
FAFSA - UNMC Title IV Code is 006895.
If accepted for the 2013/2014 academic year, you must complete the 2013/2014 FAFSA.
If accepted for the 2014/2015 academic year, you must complete the 2014/2015 FAFSA.
The UNMC Office of Financial Aid respectively requests that you/your parents file the FAFSA after you/they have submitted the 2013 U.S. 1040 Tax Return to the IRS. The priority deadline for filing the FAFSA is April 1st. If you/your parents cannot meet the April 1st deadline, because tax filing will be delayed, we will request your FAFSA be electronically corrected once taxes have been filed.
To assist us in our efforts to reduce the requests for verification documents, and costs to you for printing and mailing those verification documents, we sincerely appreciate your willingness to do the following:
- File your 2013 U.S. 1040 Tax Returns at the earliest possible date.
- Wait two (2) weeks before completing the FAFSA.
- When completing the FAFSA, use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. This tool allows you to pull in your 2013 tax information into the FAFSA. If you use this tool, you will reduce the likelihood of having to request IRS Tax Transcripts fo the federal verification process.
All communications from UNMC Student Services will be sent to your preferred email account. To avoid any delays in communication, the offices of Financial Aid, Academic Records, and Student Accounts will send all communications to your unmc.edu address. It is your responsibility to review this unmc.edu account for important information. Your academic program will provide you with your unmc.edu account in accordance with their business practices. If you do not receive an e-mail account in a reasonable amount of time, please contact your academic program to determine their business practice for providing you a UNMC email account (Outlook).
If you have questions regarding the completion of the UNMC Scholarship Application and/or the FAFSA, please contact Crystal Quarterio.
