Financial Assistance

Students who are admitted to the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program and registered for at least one course are eligible for financial assistance for the length of the program (up to three years), provided they meet satisfactory academic progress standards. Financial aid awards will be calculated at the graduate funding level.

Health Insurance

All students in the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program are automatically enrolled in Washington University's basic student health insurance plan unless proof of comparable coverage is provided. Additionally, the policy may be purchased for dependents. The 2017-2018 annual student cost for this policy is $1,630 and the deadline to waive out of the plan is September 5, 2017. All students in the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program will be charged a Health and Wellness fee of $187.50 per semester each fall and spring, regardless of the health insurance plan they have.

Students admitted to the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Studies program who take a medical leave of absence must do so according to the requirements and procedures of Washington University Student Health Services. A student may take no more than two semesters of medical leave of absence from the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Studies program. A written statement from Student Health Services concerning readiness to return, along with the student's written request for reinstatement, is required in order to be eligible for reinstatement to the program.
