Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid

Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid

Tuition and fees3 are set each year by the Liberty University Board of Trustees for the College of Osteopathic Medicine and are subject to change.

Tuition of $49,440 is divided evenly between LUCOM’s two semesters for the year.

Students on altered degree plans who are required to repeat courses or return to complete a semester for which they have already paid 50% or more of the tuition will be charged 50% of the full-time block rate for the future semester in which they are returning. All other students will be subject to the full-time block rate for the term.

Tuition Payment

Late tuition payments or failure to make arrangements to pay tuition by 5 p.m. on Friday before classes begin may result in the student being removed from class and/or clinical rotations. Failure to meet obligations for tuition, fees, and other responsible financial obligations in a timely manner may result in dismissal from the College.

Financial Aid

The purpose of the Student Financial Assistance Program at Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine is to help as many qualified students as possible to complete their medical education. As a participant in the Title IV, USDE federally guaranteed loan programs, LUCOM works with students to meet the cost of their education while a student at the COM. Students may finance their education with scholarships, federal loans, private student loans, military health profession scholarships, or other federal and state programs. Students may also apply for one of the loan forgiveness programs available through a variety of government and non-profit agencies once they begin their medical education or practice.

All new students receiving any form of financial aid must meet with a financial aid counselor or attend a meeting provided by the Office of Financial Aid within sixty days of the beginning of their first semester as a student at LUCOM. Students must attend an annual financial aid meeting or meet individually with a financial aid counselor annually. All students with any form of financial aid must meet with a financial aid counselor during a three month period prior to graduation.1

Financial aid will not be disbursed to anyone until he or she has been fully admitted as a student and all admission requirements have been met and approved by the administration.
