The Augusta University Office of Student Financial Aid helps students secure needed financial aid. Assistance includes loans, limited scholarships and/or part-time employment.

Information and applications for financial aid are provided to all applicants invited to interview. Correspondence regarding financial aid should be sent to:

Phone: (706) 737-1524

Applications for funds from Augusta University are separate from admissions applications, i.e., one need not wait for acceptance to Augusta University before applying for aid. It is recommended that financial aid application material be submitted between January 1 and February 15 prior to the anticipated enrollment regardless of acceptance status. Applications will be processed according to the date of receipt, so early application after January 1 is encouraged. Applications completed by March 31 will receive priority consideration.

The Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University requires a $200 acceptance deposit which will be credited toward first semester matriculation fees. Those accepted applicants who fail to appear for registration, and fail to notify the Office of Students, Admissions and Alumni of their withdrawal 90 days prior to enrollment, shall forfeit their acceptance deposit.

All students at Augusta University are required to carry health insurance, and certification of health insurance is required of each student annually. A student health insurance plan is available through the Augusta University Student Government Association. Students can subscribe to this or another plan of their choice as long as the plan obtained outside of Augusta University meets minimal institutional benefit standards. The cost of student health insurance included in the estimated academic expenses listed above is the annual (12-month) cost for a single student. Cost of coverage for spouses and children is higher.

During the off-site clerkship experience, the student may incur some added expenses, depending on the location selected for these experiences. After the fourth year, most students elect to take one or more state board examinations for licensing purposes. At the time of this writing, Central Regional Dental Testing Services, Inc. costs $1,900 plus a $400 facility fee for Augusta University dental students.

In accordance with federal government requirements, the Augusta University refund policy is presented below:
