Financial Aid

It is important to know that all applicants to our programs are considered for admission regardless of financial circumstances. You do not need to apply for financial aid until you are accepted into one of our programs. All students are encouraged to apply for assistance.

Federal student aid is awarded on the basis of financial need to United States citizens and eligible non-citizens. Students attending the dental school under student visa status are not eligible for federal financial aid. However, some private/alternative loans are available for those with a credit-worthy co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident. For more information and instructions, please refer to the Visa Information section of this site.

The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry Financial Aid Office assists incoming and current students in managing their financial resources and their indebtedness. The financial aid staff conducts financial need analyses and provides comprehensive financial guidance to all of our students applying for financial aid.
