Investing in You for a World of Difference
Invest today for a future of making a difference in the world. SGU’s medical school tuition compares favorably with other top medical schools — and we offer scholarships and other financial aid assistance.

We understand that the Doctor of Medicine program requires substantial resources, and therefore we have developed this webpage as a personal budgeting resource to international applicants. Please note that students should not expect to support themselves through employment while attending the university. In the best interest of the student, a comprehensive financial plan is necessary in order to determine whether you have the resources necessary to complete this program of study.
