Post Baccalaureate Pre-Med/Pre-Health Financial Aid
Federal Financial Aid
Federal financial aid is generally only available to students in a degree-seeking program. The Department of Education makes exceptions for students who are taking preparatory coursework necessary to enter a new field of study. Students in the Fordham Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical/Pre-Health Program are eligible for this exception.
This exception for federal aid is extended only to the Federal Direct Loan Program and only for one consecutive 12-month period for a minimum of 6 credits per semester. The 12-month period begins the semester that the student first takes out a Direct loan in the Fordham Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical/Pre-Health Program.
In order for your eligibility for a Federal Direct loan to be determined, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA code for Fordham University is 002722. Eligibility is also subject to the student not exceeding the undergraduate loan limits.
