Financial Aid

Mission Statement

The Office of Financial Aid provides financial assistance to students whose personal and family resources are not adequate to cover the expenses involved in attending SUNY Upstate Medical University. Financial assistance is provided through loans, grants, scholarships, and student employment.

In support of this mission, the Office of Financial Aid is committed to:

  • Assisting students and families in the achievement of their postsecondary educational goals by making every effort to remove financial barriers.
  • Providing financial assistance to all eligible students who qualify based on the availability of funds and demonstrated financial need.
  • Providing access to financial resources in a fair, sensitive and confidential manner.
  • Inform and educate students and their families about their financial options in an accurate, equitable and timely manner while complying with federal, state and institutional guidelines and regulations.
