Tuition and Stipends

Once a student is accepted and enters the joint degree program at any point during their first 3 years of the DMD program they receive a stipend (currently $23,844 per year), a waiver of DMD in-state block tuition, and are eligible to receive health insurance coverage. Entering students not classified as a Florida Resident will receive a wavier for out-of-state tuition for the first year of the program and are therefore expected to apply for Florida residency as soon as eligible (currently after 1 year of residency). Once starting in the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences in the fall of their fourth year, the DMD tuition is waived and tuition for the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences is fully funded. Furthermore, as a student in the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences, joint degree students receive a graduate research assistantship stipend (currently $29,276) and health insurance.
