In order to complete the FAFSA online, you will need a Personal Identification Number (PIN). To request a PIN or replacement PIN, click here.
In addition, before your financial aid packet is determined to be complete, you must also submit the Application for Student Financial Aid Assistance (MAP) form. This application collects demographic data, as well as, the amount of Federal Direct loans you wish to borrow for the entire academic year.
Once you have been officially accepted to Meharry Medical College, the Office of Student Financial Aid will send a follow-up email, which will detail all steps required to complete the financial aid process.
Important: You must reapply for financial aid each academic year by completing a FAFSA and the MAP. The Office of Student Financial Aid cannot guarantee funds will be available at registration if all documents are not completed and submitted to the appropriate agencies.
