Funding Your PA Education


The estimated cost of attendance figures should help you plan your educational financing. Great care has been taken to calculate a fair student cost of attendance, reflective of average costs in Houston. These figures are used in conjunction with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid data to determine your financial need as well as the amount you should be able to contribute toward the cost of your education. Financial aid is not available to meet expenses that exceed the estimated cost of attendance.

Financial Assistance


Financial assistance is provided through various federal, state, and institutional loan, grant, scholarship, and work-study programs based upon a student’s eligibility as determined by the Baylor College of Medicine Office of Student Financial Aid. Students who need financial assistance are advised to plan ahead and submit application materials at the earliest possible date as many of the grant and low-interest loan programs have limited funds resulting in financial aid being awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. A student demonstrates financial need when his or her expected contribution is less than the cost of their education. Applications and forms are available online for all current Baylor students. Scholarships are not available directly from the Physician Assistant Program.
