Residency Financial Aid Forms

Now that you have been accepted to a Residency Program at the School of Dental Medicine, it’s time to complete the School's financial aid application.  It is imperative that you follow the instructions and meet all deadlines for financial aid processing. You must complete and submit all documents to the School of Dental Medicine Financial Aid Office by mail or email by March 30, 2021.  This deadline was determined in order to have funding available by the end of August. 

Residents turning in documents after the deadline may not receive their financial aid by the start of the Fall term and will have to make other arrangements to pay for tuition and living expenses.  Waivers for tuition will not be granted; therefore, the resident must pay any late fees and make arrangements for living expenses.

Please be advised that your Student Loans will arrive in two equal disbursements.  The first will be disbursed one week prior to the start of the Fall term (to cover your fall tuition charges), and the second will be disbursed one week prior to the start of the Spring term (to cover your spring tuition charges). 

Financial aid is credited for Fall and Spring terms only.  You will be responsible for the cost of your Summer term, typically under $500.00.

International students not qualifying for federal aid may apply for a private loan.  It is the student’s responsibility to find a lender.  You will need a credit worthy co-signer who is a U.S. Citizen for this type of loan.
