Touro University Nevada participates in financial assistance programs to help students fund their education. TUN financial assistance programs receive funds from federal, state, and private sources that may include: Federal Subsidized Loans, Federal Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Graduate PLUS loans, Private Alternative Loans, Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program, Air Force Health Professions Scholarship Program, Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program, Veterans Administration Benefits, and Federal Work‐Study Program.
Eligibility for financial assistance is determined by a federally recognized Needs Analysis System. The Needs Analysis System reviews and evaluates information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and determines the amount of personal resources a student may have available to use toward educational expenses.
If resources are less than expenses, students are considered to have financial need and may be eligible for need-based financial aid funds such as Federal Subsidized Loans, Federal Work‐Study, and Pell Grant funds (first bachelor degree-seeking students only).
The financial aid funds that a student will receive while in attendance at TUN are primarily student loans, some of which are credit based (Federal Graduate PLUS and Private Alternative Loans). TUN encourages students to budget carefully and borrow conservatively and to investigate private resources for possible grants and scholarships.
