Coming back to international students: we have for you a list of dental schools with tuition, which we formulated using the comprehensive list of dental schools in the country by Start-Class. From these, we selected the top 20 with the lowest out-of-state tuition. But tuition is not the only cost that international students have to bear since they also have to consider the cost of living of a place, so we decided to incorporate that as well. Using the current cost of living index by Numbeo, which ranks cities based on a comparison of their costs with those of New York City, we then ranked the 20 universities based on the cost of living of the city they are situated in. Bear in mind that two of the cities were not available in Numbeo’s list in which case we used the index of the capital city of the respective state. Furthermore, since we considered tuition costs to be more of an issue for international students than general costs due to their hefty numbers, we gave the ranking by out-of-state tuition a weightage of 70% while the cost of living was given a weightage of 30%, which finally gave rise to our list of the cheapest dental schools for international students. Please note that this list also represents the cheapest dental schools 2017 as generally, colleges with a lower out-of-state tuition also indicate inexpensive in-state tuition.
