Financial Aid Office

We understand that financing a college education is one of the most significant life investments you can make. You may need financial assistance, and as a graduate student enrolled at Appalachian College of Pharmacy (ACP), you may be eligible for unsubsidized and graduate PLUS loans from the federal government. The federal government establishes the interest rate annually in July for these types of loans. Students who meet the eligibility requirements may also be eligible for private loans. A private loan is based on your own creditworthiness or that of your co-signer. The interest rates for private loans can vary depending upon your credit history.

The Financial Aid Office’s (FAO) mission is to help you attain your dream of becoming a pharmacist. The FAO understands that investing in your pharmacy education is an important decision and we want to help you along the way by:

  • Providing you with the Cost of Attendance (COA).
  • Assisting you through the financial aid process
  • Helping you make sound financial decisions which meet your educational needs
  • Providing you information so you can make informed money management decisions
  • Realizing that each student may have a unique financial need

We encourage you to explore the different financial aid opportunities available to you. If you are unsure of how to pay for pharmacy school, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
