All students who are degree candidates in the School of Public Health are eligible to apply for financial aid. Most types of financial aid require the submission of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available online at fafsa.ed.gov, from the UIC Office of Student Financial Aid, or from the SPH Office of Student Affairs.
UIC's Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) awards and coordinates assistance from a variety of federal and state financial aid programs. Graduate students are eligible for Perkins Loans, Stafford Student Loans, Loans for Parents, and Supplemental Loans for Students. Please visit the OSFA website for comprehensive details on all loan options for students.
Students wishing to be considered for loans must fill out the FAFSA application using the Schools code: 001776. Students can view, adjust, or accept their loans and work study awards by accessing their Electronic Award Letter (E-Award) via the my.UIC website.
