Financial Aid

We know that it is a major decision to pursue a graduate education. Graduate students may receive financial assistance through loans, assistantships, scholarships, or fellowships. You also have access to one-on-one and group financial aid counseling through the School of Medicine – Columbia. Many of our graduate students choose to work directly with the University of South Carolina's main campus financial aid office. The Office of Financial Aid provides a full breakdown of the estimated cost to attend the University of South Carolina for all students.

Complete your FAFSA application by April 1 to apply for:

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
  • Federal Direct Graduate Plus Loan


Counseling and Rehabilitation students are sometimes awarded assistantships in various offices across the University including Student Disability Resources, Student Activities, Student Health Services, and Student Life, etc. If you are interested in obtaining an assistantship, you should apply directly to offices on campus that have available assistantships.

Student Health Insurance

The School of Medicine Columbia requires you to have health insurance. For additional information, please visit the Student Health Services Insurance website.
