DScD with Postgraduate Certificate Program: Students are responsible for fees associated with the clinical aspects of the program. Students with a US citizenship or residency permit are eligible for indiviudal NIH funding starting the third year of the program and are expected to submit a grant proposal with the help of their mentor. Students who do not have external government or fellowship funding are eligible for a tuition scholarship that will cover tuition beyond the typical clinical tuition as well as a stipend from the laboratory when entering the research intensive portion of the program.

DScD without Postgraduate Certificate Program: Students in the DScD only program will pay for one year of tuition equivalent to the tuition for the Masters of Science in Oral Biology program. After the first year the student will be eligible to receive a tuition scholarship and a stipend if they do not have other means of support.
