This month in Admissions ...

It's that time of year...The second round of acceptances were sent to candidates during the week of January 8th. Additional offers will be extended over the next few weeks.

The 100 spaces in the class are not yet filled. Once those spaces have been filled, formal alternate pools will be built for both resident and non-resident applicants. We do not anticipate this process will begin until the later part of February or early March. If you are a current applicant at Marquette School of Dentistry and would like to update your application with grades, shadowing/community service hours etc., please send those updates todentaladmit@mu.edu.

Advanced Standing Program...The 2017-18 Advanced Standing Program application is now closed. We will not begin to review applications until after February 1, 2018. We currently do not know how many, if any, spaces will be available this year.
