Students enrolled in the Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), the Advanced Education Program in Pediatric Dentistry and the Advanced Education in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Residency Program at the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine can access a wide variety of federal and institutional financial aid programs. The majority of funding available for students consists of federal and institutional student loans. International students can apply for private education loans provided they have a qualified co-signer for the loan.
Federal student financial assistance should supplement a family’s maximum financial resources. Financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants or low-interest loans may be found in your state or local dental organizations, agencies and societies. Aside from self-help financial support, the majority of qualified students receive federal student loans to cover the cost of attendance, which includes tuition & fees, books & supplies, room & board, transportation, and personal expenses.
Students are encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible.
