Financial Aid | Kent State University

The Office of Financial Aid understands your concern in financing a podiatric medical education. Given the increasing educational costs, unless you are fortunate enough to have adequate family resources, it is likely you will acquire sizable loan obligations. Our Financial Aid staff works closely with prospective students to ensure eligibility for the best packaging of available funds.

Applying for financial aid is free. Applicants can be considered for the programs in which the College of Podiatric Medicine participates by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA) form along with other institutional forms as required. While the FAFSA may be accessed online, other documents are available by request from the CPM Financial Aid Office for all eligible candidates and continuing education students.

Depending on the applicant's level of need, academic status in the podiatric program, and available resources, a student may be able to receive funding that will cover the entire career costs of securing a podiatric medical education, including transportation, books, supplies, and room and board.

Please contact the Office of Financial Aid to obtain additional information on the programs listed, as well as information on the institutional scholarships that are available through the College of Podiatric Medicine.

In 2015, CPM will continue its support to the student population through more than one-half million dollars in internal institutional scholarship awards. Our external resources will add $200,000 or more, culminating in awards in excess of $800,000 which will be made available to our student population annually in recognition of exhibiting academic excellence in our rigorous podiatric medical study.
