All Post-Graduate Students must have Health Insurance Coverage or must enroll in the university plan provided through Aetna Health Insurance Policy; for the Waive/Enroll process go to: www.aetnastudenthealth.com.  Fees are subject to change without notice. It is anticipated that the costs of tuition and books will increase commensurate with inflation, budget needs, or similar affecting factors. Current costs are available upon request.

It is not possible for our full-time graduate students to work outside of the graduate program while enrolled. Such outside activity would seriously compromise the educational experience and the fulfillment of responsibilities to the patients and the Division of Orthodontics.
