Financial Aid and Scholarships

In conjunction with UNR, UNR Med offers extensive financial assistance programs to ensure that qualified students will not be denied higher education because of financial need. Financial aid is considered a supplement to the funds provided by the student and his/her family. The university evaluates all available outside sources of income and expects the student to utilize them completely. Information regarding the availability and application procedures for all financial aid programs may be obtained in the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships on the UNR campus, (775) 784-4666.

The Office of Admissions and Student Affairs' Assistant Director for Financial Aid, Leonard Walker, M.Ed., is the medical students' primary resource to assist with financial aid issues. However, it is the responsibility of the student to submit all documents to the appropriate offices by the established deadlines. Federal Financial Aid is not guaranteed each year of enrollment. Students are responsible for reapplying each year. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available in January for the following academic year. For forms, publications, and policies please refer to the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships Forms Page. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress to remain eligible for financial aid and scholarships.
