Financial Aid

How do I apply for financial aid at UNMC?

Review the Office of Financial Aid website for more information about financial aid at UNMC.

For Federal Aid consideration, students must complete the FAFSA. Be sure to include the University of Nebraska Medical Center's institutional code on the form. The code is 006895. If you have already filed a FAFSA but did not include our school code, you can contact the financial aid office for assistance. You do not need to file another form.

For additional assistance you may visit Education Quest, which provides free services to help plan and pay for college.

If you would like more information about financing your education, please call the UNMC financial aid office at 402-559-4199 or 800-626-8431 ext. 4199 or visit the UNMC Financial Aid web site.
