Student Financial Services

The mission of the Office of Student Financial Services within the Saint Louis University School of Medicine is to assist you in identifying and providing resources to meet the costs associated with medical school.

Aid Periods and Disbursement Dates

The dates below represent the loan periods for each level in the school of medicine. Disbursement dates, as shown, represent the earliest loans may be disbursed. Actual student start date and pace of credit hour completion may cause a delay to these dates.

All first-time borrowers must complete Federal Entrance Counseling and the Master Promissory Note (MPN) before loan funds can be disbursed. To ensure timely receipt of your student loan refunds, update your address or sign up for Direct Deposit via the mySLU portal.
