Financial Aid

Office of Enrollment Services

The Office of Enrollment Services provides financial aid, debt counseling, budgeting and other important resources to students who seek financial aid to cover the expenses involved in attending the school of medicine. Through individualized counseling, students will have access to information and resources that will help plan a future of financial wellness beyond medical school.

As a private medical school, our tuition and fees are not based on residency; everyone pays the same.

Leave of Absence and Withdrawal Policy

Medical students are expected to proceed through the medical school curriculum in a continuous, uninterrupted fashion. In the event of extenuating circumstances, students may request a leave of absence or withdraw from the school of medicine. For more information, please refer to the Leave of Absence and Withdrawal Policy.

Obligation for Payment

TCU has a monthly billing cycle. Payment of a minimum 20% of total basic charges (tuition, fees, and student health insurance, less approved financial aid) is required by the 1st day of the month that classes begin.

The remaining net basic charges must be paid in full by the 1st of the following month to avoid TCU’s payment plan and the associated fee. View TCU Payment Options.

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Federal Financial Aid Policy

All students must maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) requirements to receive federal financial aid. For more information, please refer to the Satisfactory Academic Progress for Federal Financial Aid Policy.

Technical Standards Policy

Abilities and characteristics, defined as technical standards, in conjunction with the educational program objectives (EPOs) established by the faculty, are requirements for admission, promotion and graduation. Requests for University-provided accommodations will be provided if the requests are reasonable, do not cause a fundamental alteration of the medical education program, do not cause an undue hardship on the University, are consistent with the standards of the medical profession, and are recommended by the Texas Christian University’s (TCU) Center for Academic Services. For more information, please refer to the Technical Standards Policy.
