Applications for admission are reviewed by the Dental Student Admission Committee. In accordance with the guidelines of the American Dental Education Association, no notification of the admission decision is made to a candidate before Dec. 1 of the current admissions cycle..

Formal Notification

After a decision is reached on an applicant, notifications will be sent to each candidate. Accepted candidates have 30 days from the date of an acceptance letter to make a required nonrefundable $200 deposit. If notification of acceptance is made after Feb. 1, the candidate must submit the deposit within 15 days of the date of acceptance.

Several individuals are placed on a list of alternates. In the event that a position becomes available, an applicant from this list is chosen to fill the vacancy.

Denied applicants who are interested in reapplying should make an appointment with the School of Dentistry director of admissions to discuss the reason for the denial. Advice will be offered to applicants to enhance their future applications.
