Student Financial Aid

Welcome to MUSC Student Financial Aid Services. The information provided will help answer questions about the Student Financial Aid Application process and give you valuable information on how to finance your Graduate/Professional School education.  The primary responsibility of funding your education rests with the student and their family. Student Financial Aid from federal, state and institutional sources is meant to only supplement a student’s resources. Students need to understand that all expenses may not be met through Student Financial Aid.

If you don't normally file a tax return you may be able to register for an Economic Impact Payment with a quick visit to the Non-Filers tool on IRS.gov.

Dependent students do not qualify.
