Projected Cost of Attendance

To help you plan your education at the UCLA School of Dentistry, here is a projected off-campus and commuter budget for students in the 4-year DDS program for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. Please note that certain expenses listed, such as room and board, personal expenses, and transportation, vary depending on your living arrangement and lifestyle.

One major factor that influences a student’s budget is tuition, which varies depending on whether or not that student is a California resident or non-California resident. See what qualifies you as a California resident on the UCLA Registrar’s Office website.
