Application Guidelines

dds_application_guidelinesApplicants must apply through the Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS). The AADSAS application for admission must be completed and submitted by close of business on December 15. Because of the rolling basis of the admissions process, applicants are urged to apply much earlier than the application deadline.

UMSOD's supplemental application fee of $90 will be paid via SLATE, along with your payment you will also submit your secondary application. Instructions to create your Slate account and how to pay your application fee and complete your secondary application will be sent to you once UMSOD has received your completed and verified ADEA AADSAS application.

Once applications are processed by the Office of Admissions, they are carefully reviewed. This evaluation includes a review of the academic record, DAT scores, essay, and other information included as part of the AADSAS application. Upon receipt of the completed supplemental application and fee, applicants advancing in the admissions process will be invited for an interview with members of the Committee on Dental Recruitment and Admissions. A personal interview does not guarantee admission.

Interviews begin mid-September and are conducted through late February, with additional dates available in early March, if necessary.
