Tuition and fees

Tuition and fee rates for advanced dental education students are established annually by the VCU Board of Visitors in May. 

Tuition and fees, stipends, and scholarships are subject to change annually and are program dependent. For international students, an educational services fee also applies.

For students enrolling in July 2023, educational and clinical tuition and fee charges will not exceed $37,500. To partially offset these charges, the Department of Orthodontics will provide scholarships of $21,500 to each enrolling student, for a net cost of $16,000 annually for 2 years. 

The department will pay a fee for application to the graduate school for admission into the Master of Science in Dentistry program for students accepted into the certificate program.

There are no additional supply, camera, instrument, or computer fees for enrolling students.
