Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid
Most veterinary students in need of financial assistance rely heavily on federally insured loans. Eligible students can borrow up to $40,500 annually from this source. In addition, the College of Veterinary Medicine administers a few supplemental loan funds and awards some scholarships from endowments. Both of these are generally disbursed to students already enrolled and therefore cannot be committed in advance. Health Professions Student Loans (HPSL), College of Veterinary Medicine Scholarships and long- and short-term emergency loans are also administered by the College Awards and Scholarships Committee. In order to qualify for any of these, the student must have a current ‘Free Application for Federal Student Aid’ form on file. Information for filing is available at interview.

Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees for entering UFCVM students in the professional curriculum are $28,100 per year for Florida residents and $45,500 for Non-Sponsored applicants. These fees are subject to change. The official breakdown of tuition and fees can be found at the University Financial Services website.
In addition, we have provided a copy of the UFCVM cost of attendance. This link represents the total cost for the UFCVM from the 2011-2012 academic year. For example, the first page represents the total cost of attendance for a 1 VM (or first year vet student). So, in this example, let us assume that you are living off campus – then the data that interests you would be “1 VM off-campus.” According to this data the cost of attendance per semester would be $22,244. Using this you can calculate your total cost for the year (freshmen do not take summer classes) at $44,488. This number reflects the total cost of attendance for a Florida Resident AND the maximum amount of financial aid for which you would be eligible. For out of state residents, you would need to add the “Out of State Fall 2005-2011″ (in this example the number is $9,282 per semester) to that calculation per semester.

Note: The Self-FundedTuition is fixed for four years regardless of any state or university increases in tuition or any changes in your residency status.
While there are a number of scholarship opportunities at the UFCVM, very few of these scholarships require a personalized application. Each year, students will fill out an Application for Scholarships and/or Financial Aid form provided by the Office for Students and Instruction. Using this information, the Awards and Scholarship Committee will award eligible students based on financial need, academics, and any other criteria as defined by the scholarship agreement set down by our donors.
The few scholarships that require a specialized application will be announced by the Office for Students and Instruction as they become available.
Although incoming students are not eligible for the vast majority of these scholarships, there are some, that when available, may be distributed by the college based on academic success and financial need.
Note: The UFCVM awarded over $400,000 in scholarships to students in 2012.
