Tuition & Financial Support

Attaining a quality pharmacy education does not come without cost, so the College of Pharmacy has worked in partnership with generous donors to establish a wealth of scholarship opportunities.  

Approximately 85% of our students received some form of financial assistance from UT Austin’s Student Financial Services and/or the College of Pharmacy.

Financial Support

Federal Financial Assistance

We encourage students to pursue various financial avenues to assist in paying for tuition and cost-of-living expenses. For a large population of our student body financial assistance is provided by federal funding by submitting a FAFSA application to the Federal Student Aid Office.

If you apply for financial aid, please do not forget to submit your FAFSA by the priority deadline of January 15th for your anticipated acceptance year.

The Office of Federal Student Aid at the U.S. Department of Education will provide our financial aid office (Office of Student Financial Services) to begin the processing of calculating your financial aid package.  The types of financial aid you may be awarded are based on graduate sources and limits.

Pharm.D. students have typically been awarded one or more of the following types of graduate awards:

  • University Tuition Grant: up to $1,500.00 annually; all students not guaranteed this grant
  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan (standard): up to $20,500.00 annual* maximum
  • Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan (health professions): up to $12,500 annual* maximum
  • Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan (cost of attendance minus financial aid)

* The annual loan cycle overs the start of the academic fall semester through the end of summer semester.
