Only applicants who have received an offer of admission for the 2014-2015 academic year may apply for financial aid.

Application Process: 2014-15 Academic Year

Applicants that have received an offer of admission for the 2014-2015 academic year may apply for financial aid.

Required Documents:

Free Application for Federal Student Aid

Stanford University School of Medicine school code: G24552.

You must use your PIN number to file your FAFSA.

The deadline to submit the 14-15 FAFSA is June 30, 2015

Note: We require you (students only) to use the IRS Data Retrieval tool (available on FAFSA February 3rd) to upload your tax information to the FAFSA. If you do not use the IRS Data Retrieval tool to complete your FAFSA, you will need to submit a tax transcript to our office. This is not the same as a tax return. You can request your tax transcript by calling the following IRS number at 1-800-908-9946.

Completing the high school (or equivalent) information section on the FAFSA is now required.

Non-filers can indicate they did not file on the FAFSA but must submit their W2 (if received).

2) 2014-15 Need Access Application

**Students who will be 30 years old by the beginning of the academic year are considered independent and do not need to submit the Need Access Application. Do not complete the Need Access application if you wish to apply for federal aid only.**

Preferred method of receipt for documents is fax or upload form. You can submit documents online via our secure upload form available in AXESS starting March 2014.

If your spouse or parents are not required to file a federal tax return and will not do so, they must complete a non-tax filing statement (only for US Citizens or Permanent Residents that did not file a 1040 federal income tax return). W2s should still be submitted if received from an employer.

If your parent(s) is not a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, he/she is required to provide official income verification from his/her employer. This verification must show your parent's income for the 2013 year and MUST BE CONVERTED into US dollars.

If it is impossible to secure information from a parent due to absolute estrangement, you may complete an absolute estrangement waiver. Professional third-party verification of the circumstance is required.
