Financial Aid

UHSA provides the support and financial assistance that will make your education more affordable. Students accepted to the School of Medicine programs not only have the option of applying for UHSA Scholarships and Grants but may be eligible for the following programs:

Tuition Payment Plan

UHSA offers tuition payment plans to eligible students who wish to finance their tuition in multiple installment payments. Students can apply for a tuition payment plan by completing the Tuition Payment Agreement.


You are eligible for a payment plan if:

  1. You are enrolled for the current academic term.
  2. There is no financial hold on your account.
  3. You have not defaulted in a prior tuition payment plan.

After you have received confirmation of your Tuition Payment Plan Application’s approval, you can make your first installment payment online through MyUHSA or by visiting Make a Payment.

Financial Aid for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents

Students at UHSA are not currently eligible for U.S. federal student loans. However, eligible students have access to private loans and federal aid through our partners.

Meritize Private Student Loan

With a Meritize loan, you can receive credit for your merit to potentially improve your loan options by sharing your academic history, military background, or work experience.

A borrower must have a cosigner and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (borrower or cosigner). Applicants who have a permanent address outside of the continental United States are not eligible. This includes the Territories of the United States. If approved for a loan, the actual loan amount, term, payment, and APR amount of loan that a customer qualifies for may vary based on credit determination, state law, and other factors.

Only tuition can be paid with the Meritize loan.

Financial Aid for Canadian Citizens

UHSA is a designated institution for the Canada Student Loans Program (CSLP), which provides citizens with loans and grants to cover education costs. All provinces and territories participate in the CSLP, except Quebec, solely because the province does not provide provincial loans for international schools.

Applicants must use UHSA’s designated school code [ZPAS] when completing the process of obtaining funding.

Provincial and territorial student aid offices:

The approval process for Canadian financial aid may take up to 12 weeks. After you apply, your provincial or territorial student aid service will be in touch with you for the steps that will follow.

For students who still need to pursue a private loan option beyond federal and provincial funding, we also offer the following:

Canadian Banks Offering Student Lines Of Credit

As a Canadian student, you may also be eligible to apply for Student Lines of Credit through banks that cater specifically to medical students. When applying for a student loan, you first must supply the financial institution with our school information then proceed to complete the application process. Some banks will require a cosigner during the application process.

To apply for a Student Line of Credit, we recommend contacting the Financial institutions directly. For your convenience, a direct link to the specific programs at each eligible financial institution can be found below:
