Who Can Use It
You have full access to the MLOC® tool if you are an enrolled medical school student, a medical school graduate, or a medical school administrator at an AAMC-member medical school. All eligible users have free premium access, which includes the ability to upload your federal loans, run repayment scenarios, and save your loan repayment options. To sign in to your MLOC account, see below under getting started.
Non-premium users have limited functionality and are not able to upload their federal student aid loan file or save their repayment information. A visitor can upgrade to premium access for $9.99. Upgrading your account provides premium access for four years.
Please note: If you are a dental student or graduate see the Dental Loan Organizer and Calculator (DLOC).
- Access your federal loan information at studentaid.gov and download your "My Aid Data" file.
- Sign in to your MedLoans Organizer and Calculator account using your AAMC username and password. If you need help, email Denine Hales at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please DO NOT create another AAMC account.
- Once logged in to your MLOC account, select "Get Started Now".
- Within the MedLoans Organizer tab, click on the Upload Aid Data and follow the instructions. If you have private or institutional loans that you want to store in the Organizer, you will need to enter these loans manually.
