Financial Aid for the Dental Hygiene Program

Students who will need financial assistance while attending our Dental Hygiene program are encouraged to apply for financial aid. 

To qualify for Federal aid, you:

  • must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens 
  • may not be in default on a student loan
  • must be enrolled at least half-time or retain six units per trimester. 

Students should add 50% to the charges for tuition and housing/food when looking at the normal yearly charges (that are based on a two-semester school year). This is in order to accommodate the accelerated nature of the program (a three-year Bachelor's degree). In addition, students must take classes three semesters a year (rather than the typical two semesters per year schedule) during the last year of the program. Moreover, increased annual cost is balanced by a 3 year vs. traditional 4 year program design.

To begin, please review the following information:
