ECU Brody School of Medicine Bulletin


The Office of Student Affairs makes every effort to help students obtain financial resources for their medical education. Students planning to use Financial Aid as a means of paying tuition, should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or renewal FAFSA via the Internet ( each academic year and indicate that their information should be released to East Carolina University, Title IV code 002923.

First time applicants will need to request an FSA ID ( Medical students are considered independent for financial aid purposes and only their own income is used to calculate eligibility for the Federal Stafford Loan program. The FAFSA will serve as an application for federal aid and for many types of institutional and outside assistance. Students will be notified of financial aid awards with a letter detailing cost of attendance, financial aid eligibility and the amount and type of aid offered.

Note: Award letters are subject to revision, and revised award letters supersede previously awarded financial aid eligibility. Students are required to report other institutional or outside aid.

In the following pages are brief descriptions of federal and non-federal financial assistance available at the Brody School of Medicine. In addition, there are other national and regional private agencies which offer funding to medical students. Further information about any type of financial assistance can be obtained from:
