Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

This federal form is used to determine the amount you and/or your family should be able to contribute toward the cost of your education. Apply online.


  • The U-M Medical School’s federal school code is E00398.
  • Parental information must be included on the FAFSA for any financial aid options available through the U-M Medical School. Please disregard the form instructions that say you don’t have to provide parental information if you’re a graduate or professional student.
  • Parental information is not needed if you are applying only for the William D. Ford Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan and/or the Grad PLUS Loan. Read more about these loans.

The 2023-24 FAFSA on the Web Worksheet can be found here.
