Postgraduate Dental Programs Application

Postgraduate Online Application

Please read all instructions below before completing your online application.  We suggest that you reserve about 30 minutes to complete this application.  You will create a Log-In ID and  Personal Identification Number (PIN).  Your Log-In ID and PIN enable you to return to your application as many times as you wish before your final submission to the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.  Please make special note of this information.
You will also use this Log-In ID and PIN to check the status and progress of your application on-line by logging back into SURF's from the ‘Check Application Status' link above. All of your information is transmitted through a secure server and is kept fully confidential.  Your application information and supplemental materials are reviewed by the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry - Office of Admissions for completeness before it is sent to your prospective department for review.

Before completing the on-line application, please review the admissions requirements for your postgraduate program and guidelines listed on our website.
