A new medical school in the Caribbean takes a bit of time to get all of the accreditations along with a proper channel to get loans for students. To get proper federal funding a school has t be established for at least 10 years. Ross Medical School, St. George Medical School, and American Medical University of the Caribbean all have US Federal government loans for their students. These three schools were established over 30 years ago; however, the other medical schools such as Saint James Medical School and Xavier University of Medicine in Bonaire have not been established for that long. Student of Saint James Medical School either have to get a loan from family or they have to get a private loan from banks, which is hard especially with the current economy. Some prospective students prefer not to go to any medical school which they can’t get a loan for.
Fortunately Saint James Medical School can all be funded by Affinity Federal Credit Union bank. Several current students already have taken out $25,000 for the basic science program. The credit union is based in New Jersey but you don’t have to be a resident of New Jersey to open an account. Just open a savings or a checking account and talk to their customer service to get the ball rolling. Just consider that $25,000 is enough for just the basic science program, which includes the tuition and personal expenses. It may not seem that it can be done but it can, if the money is spent in a smart manner.
