Financial Aid

Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine is strongly committed to its financial aid program, and the principle that a student's financial resources should not be a barrier to enrollment. VTCSOM offers a competitive financial aid package, including private scholarships in addition to loans. Students have access to low interest Title IV federal loans (Stafford and Graduate PLUS) through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), as well as the Private/Alternative student loan program. Students are normally eligible to borrow up to the full cost of attendance if needed. 

Parent Payment Portal

Parents wishing to pay on the behalf of a student may access the Parent Payment Portal. You must have the student's VT Banner ID available in order to process the payment. Students wanting to make payments must pay through their Hokie Spa account.
