Professional & Graduate-Level Financial Aid

Students who are accepted into the Pharm.D. program are recognized by UT Tyler as graduate/professional students whether or not the student has completed a baccalaureate degree. Therefore, students considering financial aid options for the Pharm.D. program, should be evaluating graduate/professional level financial aid for the fall semester and onward.

It is recommended for students to start working on their FAFSA as soon as possible. Priority deadline for processing financial aid requests require the FAFSA to be submitted before April 1st to The University of Texas at Tyler, Code 011163.

Pharmacy students needing additional financial aid information should be informed to call the One Stop Service Center (903) 566-7180 or email Inquiries will be forwarded to an available financial aid counselor for assistance. Please identify yourself as a Pharmacy Student inquiring about Professional/Graduate level financial aid for the Pharm.D. program. Please note that there may be loans associated with Financial Aid.

Tuition Exemptions and Waivers

Pharm.D. students are typically not eligible for tuition exemptions or waivers. Exceptions may include when a Pharm.D. student takes non-pharmacy courses during the first and second summer of the program or if a student is eligible for a federally sponsored exemption.

  • Tuition Exemptions are a type of financial assistance that allows certain Texas residents to attend a public college or university in Texas without paying tuition, or in some cases, tuition and fees. Pharm.D. students are not eligible for state supported tuition exemptions (e.g. Hazlewood Exemption). However, students may be eligible for federal programs. Tuition exemptions may apply to students taking classes at UT Tyler during the first and second summers during the program.
  • Waivers allow certain students who are not Texas residents to reduce the cost of tuition to in-state rates. The Pharm.D. tuition rate is the same for in-state and out-of-state students, therefore these waivers would not apply for college of pharmacy classes. Waivers may apply to students taking classes at UT Tyler during the first and second year summer semesters.
