Financial Aid

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

UHSA is a designated institution for the Canada Student Loans Program (CSLP), which provides citizens with loans and grants to cover the cost of education. 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:

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.

To qualify, a borrower must have a co-signer, be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the 50 United States (borrower or cosigner), and meet Meritize’s underwriting requirements. 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.

Tuition Refund Policy

Students withdrawing from UHSA are required to first submit in writing, a formal letter to the Dean for the School of Medicine requesting withdrawal from the program, including a reason for withdrawal. Students officially withdrawing from the UHSA will be credited for tuition and refundable fees in according with the following schedule.

Applies once classes have started:

Week 180%
Week 260%
Week 340%

No refunds are issued after the 4th week.

UHSA reserves the right to change its tuition and adjust fees or establish addition fees at any time without prior notice.

Past Due Accounts

Both registered and non-registered student accounts are sent to a university designated collections agency when collection efforts through the normal billing process have failed and any of the following occurs:

  • An account becomes seriously past due (more than 120 days)
  • A significant past due balance has accumulated
  • The billing address is determined to be non-deliverable
  • Other conditions that may affect account collection

Once an account is forwarded to collections, it is considered delinquent. Students are responsible for paying all collection costs including court costs and attorneys’ fees. If your account has been referred to the university’s designated collection agent, please contact them immediately to make payment arrangements. The longer you wait, the higher the risk of tarnishing your credit rating and being subjected to further enforcement proceedings.

Payments must be made directly to the collection agency. If you pay the collection agency directly, they will automatically notify us of your payments. Failure to respond to the collection agency and make the required payments may result in additional legal and service fees. Further, the account may be reported to the appropriate credit bureaus, which will negatively impact the ability to obtain future credit.

After a student account becomes delinquent, a Bursar collection hold is placed on the account preventing enrollment, obtaining transcripts, or charging other services to the account.

If your account is in collections and you wish to contact the collections agency to discuss payment options, you can reach them by visiting:
