The UIW Office of Financial Assistance is available for assistance and provides the necessary forms to complete the financial aid record. UIW School of Osteopathic Medicine also provides MBS financial aid assistance by contacting the Office of Admission at MBSprogram@uiwtx.edu or (210)283-6998. 

Types of Aid 

  • Scholarships

    UIW awards scholarships based on academic excellence, performance in a specific activity (such as the fine arts), or on other criteria established by donors. For a listing of available scholarship opportunities, visit http://uiw.edu/finaid/scholarships.html

    Students should take advantage of all scholarships in which they meet the eligibility requirements including scholarships outside of UIW. Below are additional scholarship resources to consider. 

  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan

    Federal Direct Student Loans are low-interest loans which must be repaid at a future date, usually beginning six months after graduation, periods of non-enrollment, or less than half-time enrollment. An unsubsidized loan is not awarded on the basis of need. Interest is accrued from the time the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full. 

  • Graduate PLUS Loan

    Graduate PLUS Loans are unsubsidized, credit based loans that graduate students may apply for to assist with educational expenses. Loan eligibility is based on credit history, a minimum of half-time enrollment, and completion of a FAFSA. 

  • State Loans

    State loans are credit-based and may require a cosigner. However, state loans generally offer more favorable terms than other alternative loans. Students are encouraged to maximize  federal loans before borrowing state loans.

  • Private Loans

    Private (or “alternative”) loans are provided by outside companies, usually banks, for educational expenses. These loans are credit-based and will often require a valid cosigner in order to qualify. Interest rates are market-based, and can be either fixed or variable. Students are encouraged to maximize federal loans prior to using private loan. A list of common lenders can be viewed at www.uiw.edu/finaid under Loan Assistance.
