Financial Aid Packages: 3 Examples

The following examples are three hypothetical financial aid scenarios intended to illustrate our financial aid packages for incoming first-year students.  All assume 2014/15 costs for a first-year medical student at UVA, and that the student has applied for school-funded aid and been assessed a parent contribution based on Federal Need Analysis Methodology. This methodology considers family income and assets, taxes paid, size, # in college, age of older parent, state of residence, etc.  Contribution estimates for your individual family circumstances can be calculated on the web.  (http://www.finaid.org/calculators/finaidestimate.phtml)

 

To the extent of funding availability, it is our current policy to meet demonstrated need as follows:

Virginia Resident: Up to $20,000 need-based scholarship.
Non-Virginian: Up to $24,000 need-based scholarship.

If need for institutional aid remains after the student has been awarded the maximum University scholarship, up to $10,000 of the remaining need can be met with Institutional Loans.

 

 

Example 1:
In-state M1 student, calculated parent contribution of $25,000

Cost of Attendance: $68,570

Available funding:
$20,000 Need-based School Scholarship
$10,000 Need-based School Loan
$38,570 Federal Unsubsidized Loan

 

 

Example 2:

NOTES:

  • The total aid you can receive from combined sources can never exceed the approved Cost of Attendance.
  • Your family circumstances or changes in federal regulations and/or school awarding policies may result in packages different from those above.
  • Outside scholarships may reduce parent contribution, but will be considered a resource available to meet the cost of attendance.
