WHAT'S HAPPENING IN ADMISSIONS

This month in Admissions ...

It's that time of year... Our initial batch of offers of admission were extended on December 1, 2017. Applicants accepted in this first round have a deposit deadline of January 2, 2018 to reserve their spaces in our class.

We anticipate that the first week of January will be a little crazy. We appreciate, in advance, your patience as the dust settles coming out of our holiday absence. We do not anticipate additional offers of admission will be extended before the second week of January.

NOTE: Marquette University, and therefore the Dental School Admissions Office, will be closed between December 23, 2017 and January 1, 2018. If you have questions or concerns regarding admissions as your deposit deadline approaches, we encourage you to contact us before the end of business on Friday, December 22, 2017. Happy Holidays!

Advanced Standing Program...The 2017-18 Advanced Standing Program Application is open. Interested applicants must apply through CAAPID by January 1, 2018. We will not begin to review applications until after February 1, 2018.
