Health Professional Student Loan

Health Professional Student Loan

Health Professional Student Loan (HPSL) is a need-based loan offered at a 5% interest rate to students in the School of Veterinary Medicine, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program. The HPSL is not available to students in the Master of Preventative Veterinary Medicine (MPVM) program. 

Graduate students are considered independent for financial aid eligibility; however, regulations by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services require schools to consider parents' information for the purpose of awarding HPSL funds.

It is important to:

  • File a FAFSA by the March 2 priority filing date
  • Provide parent information on the FAFSA. This requirement cannot be waived unless the parents are deceased. 
  • Complete the School of Veterinary Medicine Supplemental Application through your MyAwards and submit with a signature through Contact An Expert.
  • Please note, there are limited funds available

If eligible, we anticipate for the Health Professional Student Loan to be posted on your MyAwards by the end of August.
