As the world of dental technology expands, there is increasing demand for dental assistants who are skilled in operating this technology. Our goal at the AS4U Career Center is to see our students placed as assistants in dental offices across the country. We strive to give all of our students the tools they need to excel as entry-level general dental assistants.
At AS4U Career Center, we don’t want any potential student to miss out on quality training and a promising career because of finances. That’s why we offer several financing options:
The AS4U Career Center in-house financing plan helps make dental school more affordable. The plan allows a student to pay per class. With 16 classes to complete, we accept the application fee plus 1/16 of the tuition as the down payment. Simply report to each class with 1/16 of the total tuition and be on your way to an exciting new career. Payment is due at the class time and must be received, or the student will not be allowed to stay. (No refunds.)
AS4U Career Center also offers a work-study program to help dental students manage education costs. The tuition holdback goes right into the school fund. For instance, we may place a student in a front desk position paying $12 per hour. Five dollars will be held for tuition payment, and the rest goes in the student’s pocket. Once enough money is saved in the tuition fund, classes can begin. Even if the student chooses not to start class, the money will remain available in the tuition fund at AS4U Career Center, but the work-study position will end.
Our newest financing option is available to military spouses. My Career Advancement Account, a component of the Department of Defense, is a career development and employment assistance program and offers grants of up to $4,000 to military spouses pursuing licenses, certificates, or associates degrees needed for careers in high-demand fields.

Forms of payment we accept at AS4U Career Center include cash, major credit/debit cards, PayPal, CareCredit, and more. For more information, contact us today!
Meritize is a unique academic lender that bases its loan approvals not only on traditional credit scores, but also using a student’s academic performance. The company looks beyond traditional credit data and taps into students’ academic data history to expand and enhance loan options, offering loans with better terms that may not even require a cosigner. Especially if you have thin credit or no credit profile, you might benefit from a Meritize loan. Even if your academic record isn’t perfect, Meritize will work with you to customize a loan that meets your specific needs.
We’re pleased to work alongside Meritize to expand financing opportunities. The minimum loan amount is $5000, which will give you approximately $1100 in your pocket for living expenses after your school tuition is paid. For more information, you can go to www.meritize.com.
