At Saba University, we are committed to making your payment process as clear and hassle-free as possible.

According to the American Association of Medical Colleges, the per-semester tuition at public medical schools in the U.S. now exceeds $25,000. The cost has risen so high that most students must seek additional financing beyond what they can obtain through federal loan programs, such as Stafford Loans.
