Financial Aid and Scholarships
Financial aid for students enrolled at KU Medical Center is separate from KU Lawrence campus financial aid. Contact the Office of Student Financial Aid for questions or additional information regarding tuition, fees, and financial aid.

A number of scholarships and awards are available through the School of Health Professions. In addition, the American Health Information Management Association and the Kansas Health Information Management Association offer scholarships and awards specifically for students entering a program in health information management.

Apply for Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for students who qualify. Students should not wait to be accepted into an academic program to begin the financial aid process. Even if the application deadline for the intended program is later in the year, students are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1 priority deadline. Some financial aid grants and low interest loans have limited funding. After the priority deadline, any remaining financial aid will be awarded as available.

Even if financial aid will not be requested, students are encouraged to file the FAFSA annually (same timeline as above). The School of Health Professions has scholarship funds (awarded in the spring for the next academic year starting in fall) for students based on merit, financial need, or both. The FAFSA enables the School to consider all scholarship funds available. The FAFSA must be completed annually.

The total financial aid award package, including scholarships, loans, or need-based aid, cannot be finalized until the student's application materials and fee have been received and acceptance to KU has been completed.
