Estimated Cost of Attendance: 2023-2024

While the amount you’ll pay for your dental education will vary on a year-to-year basis, due to factors like official tuition and fees, you can get a sense of what to expect with our cost of attendance estimates.

Most of these figures are for dental students attending full time over two semesters; with the exception of students enrolled in programs that start in the Spring semester. Use these figures to help plan and understand the financial commitment that comes with being a student.

The amounts shown are not officially approved until July 2023. Financial aid awards for 2023-2024 are based on estimated expenses which are comparable to the finalized cost of attendance.

Direct and Indirect Expenses

  • Direct expenses are institutional charges billed to you by New York University via the Office of the Bursar. For example, tuition and fees or room and board (if you are a student residing on campus).
  • Indirect expenses are estimates of costs that may be associated with your attendance, but are not typically University charges. Examples include books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses.
