Financial Aid for Pharmacy Students in Years Five and Six

Years five and six of the Pharmacy program entail course work that is considered to be at the post-baccalaureate level; this means, for financial aid purposes, years five and six of the program you are identified as "professional or graduate level student". Students enrolled at this level of study in the Pharmacy Program are independent for financial aid purposes and only qualify for financial aid available to graduate and professional students. Typically, this financial aid includes the unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans (with an annual loan maximum of $33,000), Graduate Direct PLUS Loans (after the student has used his/her unsubsidized loan eligibility for the year), and private loans. Fifth-year and sixth-year Pharmacy students do not qualify for any federal, state, or institutional grants or scholarships.
