Understanding your financial circumstances prior to beginning medical school in August should be high priority. Plan ahead and use the information from the AAMC- FIRST program and our website www.ucdenver.edu/finaid to take control of your expenses and resources. Before signing a lease or making other financial commitments remember you will have a limited amount of resources to support all of your personal expenses. You’re in control; be savvy and consider all your options.
Do You Understand Your Credit Situation?
You can use www.annualcreditreport.com to review your credit reports. You can request a report annually from each of the agencies. It has been suggested to take one report from each agency every four months. Please note: you are not provided your credit score, rather, you should review your report to ensure all information is accurate.
• Equifax: January
• TransUnion: May
• Experian: September
This approach allows you to have a regular review of your credit history throughout the year, versus taking all three reports once.
