An entire medical school class will get free tuition thanks to an anonymous $3 million donation

University of Houston's temporary home to the College of Medicine on campus.

(CNN)Students at the University of Houston's new medical school won't need to worry about tuition. It's paid for.

An anonymous donor gifted $3 million dollars to the Texas university -- enough to pay the full tuition of all 30 students who will be the medical school's first class when it opens in 2020.
"Student debt is the number one deterrent for students when applying to medical school," said Renu Khator, president of the University of Houston in a news release. "This generous gift will allow such students an opportunity to attend and ultimately lead the future medical workforce."
