Office of Financial Aid Mission Statement

The Office of Financial Aid supports the ICOM mission and works to empower future physicians in understanding the financial aid process, as well as important terms and conditions. We strive to provide the most comprehensive, consistent, and up-to-date information through advising and assisting you in understanding your rights, responsibilities, and options. We are student focused and recognize that your continued success in and out of the classroom is a critical part of reaching graduation and entering into residency and practice.

We promote a culture of continuous learning, responsiveness, and open communication with a focus on personalized service. We are committed to providing every student with the resources and information needed to plan your financial strategy for the next four years of your education and beyond. The financial decisions you make today have a very real impact on your future ability to maintain a strong financial profile.

We provide our staff with the technology and training required to exceed our high expectations and pursue professional excellence. Focused on the best interests of the student and institution our judicious recommendations adhere to the highest ethical, social, and professional standards.

Philosophy of Financial Assistance

The administration of financial aid programs at ICOM is designed to complement and serve the educational programs of the institution and to facilitate student access to medical education. The services provided by the Office of Financial Aid are necessary for the operation of the college and will be provided through a cooperative relationship with other departments within ICOM. The needs of the student will remain paramount in all decisions.

It is the duty of the Office of Financial Aid to utilize funds from all available (federal, state, local, and other companies or organizations) resources to facilitate support for students, who without such assistance would not be able to attend ICOM. ICOM practices fair and equitable means of determining the student's or the family's ability to contribute to the student's educational expenses. The college shares the U.S. Department of Education’s philosophy that that responsibility of meeting educational costs lies with the student and the student’s family.
