Apply for financial aid

Once you are accepted into a Mayo Clinic program, the Office of Student Financial Aid and Registrar will contact you by email with specific instructions about applying for financial aid. This email will also give you information about the cost of attendance, as well as any supplemental institutional forms or additional information we may require.

Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science schools and programs have a wide range of costs, benefits, and financial aid options. For the most specific program information, find your program of interest.

  1. FAFSA application.
    Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online using Mayo Clinic School Code 017114.
  2. Review your processed FAFSA.
    After you file the FAFSA online, you'll receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Department of Education central processor. The SAR is a summary of all data submitted on the FAFSA. Review your SAR for messages and accuracy. If changes are necessary, log on to the FAFSA website and submit the corrections.

    Two to three days after you submit the FAFSA online, our office will receive this information electronically. We will use the FAFSA along with any other requested institutional forms to determine your eligibility for financial aid.
  3. Accept your financial aid offer.
    Once your financial aid eligibility has been determined, the Office of Student Financial Aid and Registrar will send you a financial aid offer notification email. This email will direct you to the Mayo Clinic online student portal, EdLink, to review your financial aid offer. EdLink will list the types and amounts of aid for which you qualify.

    Using the portal, you'll be able to accept, reduce, or decline loan funds that have been offered to you. Once you have accepted your aid, our office will process your aid and prepare for disbursement.
  4. Disbursement of financial aid.
    Student financial aid disbursements coincide with the tuition billing cycle. The EdLink portal includes detailed information about disbursement dates and amounts. It's important to update your mailing address and bank deposit information to ensure that the disbursement process goes smoothly. Failure to do so could result in a delay in receiving your financial aid disbursement.
