An overview of documents that are part of the financial aid application process:
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

- The U-M Medical School’s federal school code is E00398.
- Parental information must be included on the FAFSA for any financial aid options available through the U-M Medical School. Please disregard the form instructions that say you don’t have to provide parental information if you’re a graduate or professional student.
