International students are welcome to apply, but it is required that international applicants successfully complete undergraduate college work leading to a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college of arts and sciences in the United States or Canada. All courses taken in satisfaction of the requirements for admission must be taken at or accepted as transfer credits by an accredited college in the United States or Canada, and must be acceptable to that institution toward a baccalaureate degree in arts or sciences.
Federal law mandates that only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible to receive financial aid. (Permanent residents must provide a copy of their unconditional Green Card upon request when applying for financial aid.) Applicants who are non-US citizens or do not obtain permanent resident status by July 1st of the year entering dental school, must deposit an amount equal to four years’ tuition and fees (approximately $200,000 US dollars) into a bank escrow account in advance of their matriculation to TCDM@NYMC.
