Is financial aid available for non-U.S. residents?

International students may apply for a private loan through a participating lender. Borrowers must have a co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, who resides in the country and is creditworthy. The co-signer must agree to repay the loan if you fail to do so. For more information please visit Student Financial Services site.

What is Feinberg’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) code?

Feinberg’s FAFSA school code is 001739.

What do I need to do if I'm interested in applying for financial aid of any kind?

All applicants who are invited to interview at the Feinberg School of Medicine may apply for assistance (loans and need-based grants); however, individual award notices are generated only for accepted students.

There is no application process for merit scholarships; all accepted students are automatically considered. If you wish to apply for other financial aid (federal loans, credit-based student loans and/or Northwestern University grants), all required application materials must be submitted by:

  • December 15, 2022 for students admitted on or around December 1, 2022
  • March 10, 2023 for students admitted prior to March 3, 2023
  • Within 5 days of admission for students admitted after March 1, 2023

Students who submit their application materials after the deadline will be considered for financial aid but may not qualify for all programs based on the availability of funds. 

All electronic forms (FAFSA and University Aid Application) will be available online in January and should be completed in a timely manner to reach the aid office no later than the March 1st due date. Award notices will be sent on a rolling basis via email starting late-March to those who submitted all required materials by the deadline. It is strongly encouraged that students complete their financial aid application as soon as feasible once all electronic forms are accessible.  

For access to the forms and more detailed information, please visit the Financial Aid section of MD Education site.
