Admission Criteria

Unfortunately, because spaces in the class are limited, not all qualified applicants can be accepted to the Entry Level Dental Program. Admission is selective and competitive.

Your overall grade point average and grades in the required sciences are important factors in the admission decision, and preference is given to applicants who successfully complete the required sciences at a four-year college or university. Successful candidates will also demonstrate interest, knowledge and commitment to the dental hygiene profession, strong written and verbal communication skills, as well as leadership, service and other personal and academic strengths.

Required cumulative GPA: 2.7 or higher (most competitive applicants will have a cumulative grade point average above 3.2)
Average cumulative GPA for admitted students in recent years: 3.5
Required science grade point average: 2.5 or higher (most competitive applicants will have a science grade point average above 3.0)
Average science grade point for admitted students in recent years: 3.3
