Financial Aid

Students should anticipate the following approximate expenses.

For Books

  • First year $1,400
  • Second year $1,200
  • Third year $1,250
  • Fourth year $1,200

For instruments and equipment:

  • First year $14,800
  • Second year $12,000
  • Third year $7,500
  • Fourth year $6,500

Students will be required to have a personal laptop of their choice that will meet needed specifications to accommodate the program requirements. These specifications will be sent to students under separate cover upon final acceptance. These costs are equivalent to those at other private dental schools. Living expenses are estimated at $21,500 for a 12-month academic year. The primary financial responsibility for a student's education rests with the student and his or her family. However, economic circumstances for some families may make it necessary for the student to obtain assistance from other sources.

The Office of Student Financial Assistance at Nova Southeastern University is there to help as many qualified students as possible to complete their education. Various loans, scholarships, and grants are available to qualified students to help ease the cost of a health professions education. These financial assistance programs are described on our Web site  at
