WHAT'S HAPPENING IN ADMISSIONS

This month in Admissions ...

It's that time of year ...Our 100 spaces for the Fall are currently filled. Formal alternate pools have been established for both residents and non-residents. Should we experience any cancellations between now and New Student Orientation near the end of August, we are poised to fill these vacancies as quickly as we are able to do so. If you are in our alternate pool, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. In addition, we encourage alternates to remain in our alternate pool as long as possible.However, remember that if you are reapplying for 2017-2018, that applicant cycle opens on June 1, 2017.

Advanced Standing Program...The Admissions Committee has completed an initial screening of Advanced Standing Applications for the 2016-17 cycle. Currently, we do not have any spaces available for foreign trained dentists. We do not anticipate that we will have any updates regarding space availability until May.

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