BDS Course Fees Structure in Karnataka – 13 Lakhs Total Package

Are you a dental aspirant and want to join the top dental colleges in Karnataka? But confused about the BDS fees in Karnataka?

Then this article is a hand guide for you regarding the BDS fee structure in private colleges in Karnataka.

Before I provide you with the fee structure of each college in Karnataka, I just want to tell you how the fee system of each college works.

Basics About the Fee Structure

Each college decides its fee structure and submits it to the KEA or Karnataka Examination Authority, which conducts the counseling procedures for private dental colleges in Karnataka.

If you are looking for deemed dental colleges, then the counseling is conducted by MCC. If deemed, then you can go through my post about the BDS fee structure in deemed universities.

When you check the fee structure provided on KEA’s official website, you can see the fees range from Rs.3 Lakhs to Rs.6 lakhs total package.

This fee structure for BDS depends on each college.

But after the counseling when the college has some vacant seats, the colleges will reduce their fees to fill up the seats. This happens only in a few colleges.

First of all, I will list down the fee structure which is updated on the KEA website, and in the next section, I will tell you what fee structure I can provide you in private colleges.

Extra Fees for BDS in Karnataka

Apart from the tuition fees and hostel fees, there are many extra fees charged by dental colleges in Karnataka. These fees vary from college to college.

But still, I want you to be aware of these so that you can plan your budget for joining any college.

  • University Fees: These are the fees towards university every candidate has to pay each year before their final examination. This is also called an Examination fee, which ranges from Rs.5,000 to Rs.15,000 depending on the number of subjects.
  • Material Fees: Some colleges charge these as yearly fees, or some colleges charge them as one-time fees. These are the charges for the dental materials you are using during your clinical and pre-clinical studies.
  • Refundable Deposit: Very few colleges in Karnataka ask you to pay a security deposit, which will be refunded to you after your internship.

These are the basic things for which dental colleges in Karnataka charge. And in very rare cases, some colleges charge you extra for every single facility they provide.

Personal Advice:
Before joining any dental college please re-confirm with the college about extra fees charged by them. Make it clear that they don’t have any hidden fees.
