  1. The financial aid Cost of Attendance (COA) and financial aid awards are estimated based on anticipated full-time enrollment for fall/spring terms. Financial Aid (Pell Grants) will be adjusted at the end of the add/drop period to reflect your semester registration. You will be expected to repay any overpayment of financial aid that resulted from a reduction in enrollment hours. The outstanding balance will be reflected on your university student account. Students must be enrolled at least half-time for loans. Students, with the exception of Medical, must be enrolled for both 6-week sessions at the beginning of the term to receive summer financial aid disbursements.
  2. All students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). SAP is calculated annually at the end of the spring term once all grades have been posted.
  3. All HOLDs must be resolved for funds to be disburse.
  4. If applicable, refunds are processed by Student Business Services, generally 3-5 business days after funds have been posted to your tuition account.

Make a Budget

Using the cost of attendance from Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso as a budget can give you a rough estimate of the maximum you can safely spend on living expenses for the upcoming year. Budgeting with your financial aid as opposed to a typical work income is a unique situation. By budgeting with the cost of attendance, it will give you an idea on how much financial aid you will need for the year.

Remember, financial aid is disbursed in two increments throughout the academic aid year.

Loan periods vary as well throughout the four years of medical school. Therefore, budgeting plays an important part in saving financial aid money for a whole 12 months. Saving money for after graduation is another great budgeting tip.You might not receive your pay from your residency right away.

Use the monthly budget worksheetto help you get a bigger picture of what you are spending.
