Students utilizing VA Benefits at UT Southwestern are also encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), so that eligibility for other aid (including student loans) can be assessed.

Scholarships and VA Benefits

As required by VA rules, UT Southwestern will certify the amount of tuition and fees charged to a student, less any tuition and fees specific scholarships. Most scholarships at UT Southwestern are not specific to tuition and fees and will not impact the certification amount. However, there are some scholarships designated specifically for tuition and fees which will impact the certification amount. If you have questions, please

Also, be advised that medical students may be able to use the non-tuition portion of their VA benefits (stipend, housing allowance, etc.) during residency after medical school. This can be useful if you have scholarship funding during medical school, as you likely won't during residency.
