Dental school is expensive, but it is also affordable and a great investment.
There have been changes in financial aid this year, including those recently announced by President Obama. Some may help dental students, others may not, but none of them change the fact that you are ultimately in control of how you pay for dental school and in control of the choices you make about responsible budgeting and borrowing.
Some tips to help you get started:
Contact your school’s Financial Aid Office about how to apply for financial aid, especially grants and scholarships that will help you reduce how much you borrow. Research scholarship opportunities tied to service. Get a free copy of your credit report at www.annualcreditreport.com and pay down any consumer debts you have, as you cannot get financial aid to help with these expenses.
