Prospective Students

Dental Student Transfer

The rationale for admitting transfer candidates is to fill open positions in the dental classes with highly performing and qualified students. Transfer candidates are expected to be strong contributors to the quality of the class they join and the College of Dentistry‚Äôs predoctoral dental program as a whole. Transfer candidates should be aware that, due to curricular differences, they are likely to repeat a year or more of the program and that their original anticipated graduation date may be delayed. Read our Dental Student Transfer Protocol to learn how such requests are managed, how decisions are made on whether to accept a transfer candidate and for which courses an accepted transfer candidate is given credit.
