Tuition and Fees

Incoming International Dental Graduate (IDG) students for 2019 will enroll at the end of the 2018-19 academic year (Summer 2019).

Acceptance/Pre-registration Fee $2,000. This fee is required to reserve the accepted applicant's place in the entering first-year international dental graduate class. This advance payment will be deducted from the tuition payment due upon registration, but is not refundable in the event of withdrawal.

The first semester's tuition and fees, less the $2,000 previously paid, are due on or before registration day. Tuition for each subsequent semester is due on or before the appropriate registration day. Students will not be admitted until their financial obligations have been met. It is extremely important that applicants be committed to meeting their financial responsibilities during their four years of training. This should include tuition, living expenses, books, equipment, and miscellaneous expenses.

It is mandated that each student carry adequate personal medical and hospital insurance. Students may avail themselves of the hospitalization insurance plan obtainable through the university.Upon entering the program, students will purchase all necessary instruments, equipment, and an NSU-specific laptop computer required of all first and second-year predoctoral students.
