UNMC educational costs vary from program to program. Undergraduate programs allow for some work; employment is encouraged if your academic schedule permits. The academic intensity of graduate/professional studies leaves little time for work. If you find that work is feasible, our office strongly encourages you to do so.
Please use the Student Budget Worksheet to determine if you have adequate resources to fund your student costs. Federal student aid is designed to meet your "needs" not your "wants". Remember when completing the worksheet, you will have limited financial aid to meet your needs.
Medicine, first year: The required preceptorship after your first year of Medicine (summer following M1 year) is not funded with financial aid dollars. Per the College of Medicine: transportation, room and board are provided by the preceptor site. If you ask for a special site that is not funded, you are responsible for the costs and will not be funded with financial aid.
Students are billed each semester they are enrolled. It is the student's responsibility to pay their student accounts using the various forms of financial aid they receive for the academic year. The Student Billing / Delinquent Tuition Fee Policy can be found on page 92 of the Student Handbook.
UNMC students may access student account information, 1098-T, and make payments at the Campus Records Website.
It is important that students who are making plans to attend the University and who are not Nebraska residents are familiar with the effect residency policies may have on their financial preparation for attending the University.
