James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine
Admission RequirementsApplicants who will have completed the required prerequisite courses before the dental school starts in early June are invited to apply. Although a minimum of three years of college work (90 semester hours) are required for admission, applicants generally should have completed four years of college work and earned a baccalaureate degree before entrance. In addition, an applicant can only have completed a maximum of 60 semester hours at a junior/community college if all hours are earned before the student enters the third year of study toward a baccalaureate degree.
The dental school does not offer admission with advanced standing. All accepted applicants must enter as first-year students.
