1 Advance payment of $1,000.00 is required after a student has been accepted. This advance payment is nonrefundable, but it is applicable toward tuition fees.
2 All students applying for admission to the School of Dentistry are required to pay this fee. The fee is paid only once, is nonrefundable, and is not applied to other fees. The foreign admission application fee is $60.00 (U.S. dollars in check or money order).
3 Fourth-year dental students who have not completed their graduation requirements by graduation day but wish to continue in the program are required to enroll in 12 credit hours at the current tuition rate for that year.
4 These are approximate figures and are subject to change. Students with cars will also be assessed a parking fee, and health insurance coverage is an additional fee for students who are not already covered under their own policy. Other potential fees (graduation photos, board exam applications, etc.) are contingent upon the individual plans of each student.
