Tuition & Financing

Overview of Our Tuition & Financial Options

At the National Dental Academy, our affordable education program will get you a dental assisting certification for the dream job you deserve. Our program is designed to allow you keep your regular job and schedule, making it one of the most accessible dental assisting programs.

Tuition & Scholarship

The cost of tuition covers everything you need, which includes lab fees, text rental, Texas state examination, CPR certification, scrubs, a USB drive with all 10 lectures, and all your graduation materials. The total cost of tuition is $3995 but when you pay in full you receive an automatic $200 scholarship! With the scholarship, your total tuition can be as low as $3795.

Enrolling with Partial Payments

If you need to break up your tuition into partial payments, all you need to do is put down a $795 down payment at the time of your registration. Following your registration, you will need to pay the rest of your tuition in three equal payments ($1066 each).  It is our goal to make school affordable for EVERYONE! 

We are willing to work with our students to create custom payment plans when necessary. Just reach out to one of our team members at (855)805-5033 and we can talk more about what is available!

Types of Payments Accepted for Tuition

You can pay for your education with cash, check or money order. There are no fees for using these methods of payment. If you pay by check, please make checks out to “National Dental Academy”; note that there will be a $25 charge for returned checks.

We also accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.

Other Affordable Financing Options

We have many options available to assist you with paying for your education. Other options available to our students include:

Personal Loan

Many of our students use personal loans to pay for their tuition. Personal loans are often available at credit unions and banks. If you decide to use a personal loan, be sure you understand how the interest rates work and what the payment terms are.

Lending Tree

Lending Tree will help you find lenders who can help you finance your education. Just like with personal loans, be sure you understand how the interest rates work and what the terms of your loan are.
