Student Financial Aid and Debt Management

Welcome to the website for the UI College of Medicine (COM) Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA). The COM OSFA services students attending the Chicago, Peoria, Rockford, and Urbana medical sites. The OSFA administers an array of federal, state and institutional programs. If you are in need of financial assistance, you are highly encouraged to complete the necessary paperwork by the appropriate deadlines.

COVID-19 Update:

  • The situation with COVID-19 is evolving rapidly. UICOM has made changes to operations and activities while also working extremely hard to meet the needs of our students. With that said, the health and safety of our students, residents, faculty and staff as well as our greater community remain our top priority. The College of Medicine Financial Aid staff will be operating remotely. Please use the COM Financial Aid email medicinefinaid@uic.edu. Emails sent here will be answered daily. Thank you for your understanding during this time.
  • As a result of COVID-19 social distancing procedures, face-to-face advising: financial wellness and debt management appointments have been canceled.  You will receive an email in the near future when rescheduling of appointments will begin.
