Program Costs


Print

The cost of the Dental Hygiene Program can vary considerably. 

Faculty have tried to estimate the approximate cost for each year as shown in the table below. Since most students have already completed a large percentage of their general education requirements prior to enrolling in the Dental Hygiene Program, overall program tuition costs can vary. A student may calculate tuition and fees by referring to the schedules shown in the Amarillo College "General Catalog."

 

If you need financial assistance, now is the time to investigate eligibility and possible options. The Financial Aid Office (806) 371-5310 and the Adult Student Women's Service (806) 371-5449 are equipped to advise you on what resources are available.

 

Unless you are a very strong academic student and have previously finished most  or all of the required "General Education" courses, it is not recommended that you plan on working while in the program. Instead, you should seek financial support from other sources to keep your grades up and receive a quality education.
