All students should apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online as soon as it becomes available on October 1st each year. To view the types of financial aid available, please visit the Types of Financial Aid page.
Applying for Financial Aid
- Complete the FAFSA every year online or on the mobile app “myStudentAid” which can be downloaded for free from the AppStore or Google Play.
- Create a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID if you do not have one, on the Federal Student Aid website.
- JABSOM’s school code is 001610.
- Submit your FAFSA before the February 1st priority deadline to be considered for the JABSOM Opportunity Grant. If you miss the priority deadline, you may still submit your FAFSA for available aid.
- Your FAFSA information may also be used to determine eligibility for scholarships.
The Financial Aid Process
We work in partnership with the UH Manoa Financial Aid Services Office. Their office receives and processes your FAFSA and any additional requirements that may be requested to determine a financial aid award offer.
Before a financial aid award can be determined, your acceptance and residency documents must be received and then reviewed by the JABSOM Admissions Staff. Communication will be sent to you via email regarding your financial aid status and can be viewed through your MyUH account once established.
