Financial Aid

Estimated Cost of Attendance

Estimated cost of attendance can be found on WSU’s Student Financial Services website. Once on the page, select “Spokane” for the campus and “medical” for the career path.

Financial Assistance

In order to apply for financial aid at Washington State University, it is imperative you submit a FAFSA at the Federal Student Aid website: The deadline for FAFSA completion is May 1 of the year of matriculation for accepted applicants — so plan ahead to be eligible for the most aid possible. Please see Graduate and Professional Loans for the details. The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine uses Washington State University’s FAFSA school code, which is 003800

Financial Aid—Scholarships

The College of Medicine scholarship awards are based on financial need and alignment with the college’s mission. A FAFSA is required for any accepted applicant in the incoming class to receive a scholarship award offer, and the deadline to submit a FAFSA is May 1 of the matriculation year. While not required, enrolled medical students may submit a FAFSA by November 30 in subsequent years if their financial situation changes or if they missed the deadline in the prior year.

Financial Aid—Grants

WSU may offer institutional grants based on financial need, and a FAFSA with parental information is required in order to be considered. FAFSAs must be submitted for incoming students by May 1 and by November 30 for continuing students.
