Program Materials

This is a new section of the ADEA AADSAS application which includes profiles created by each dental school. Each profile provides information regarding a dental school’s program and includes tips on how to be a successful applicant. Each profile has three sections: The home page, questions and prerequisites. To view a school’s profile in “Program Materials,” an applicant must first select the school in the “Add Programs” section of the application. Applicants should carefully review each school’s requirements.

Home: This tab contains basic information about the selected dental school including deadline, start term, and other important, program-specific information.

Questions: This tab may or may not be available, depending on the selections of each dental school. If a program has opted to add program specific questions, these questions may be optional or required. Questions regarding this section should be directed to the dental school.

Prerequisites: This tab may or may not be available, depending on the selections of each dental school. If it is available, applicants will be given a list of the school’s prerequisite course requirements and asked to designate which courses have been taken or are planned which fulfill the requirements. Applicants must first complete the Transcript Entry section before courses can be selected as prerequisites. 

  • Entering these courses does not mean an applicant has met the school’s prerequisite requirements. Instead, the school is asking applicants to self-identify courses for their review. If an applicant has any questions regarding what the program will accept regarding these prerequisites, please contact the program directly.
  • Applicants can learn more about prerequisites required by each dental school in the 2017-2018 ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools.

 

Is the Program Materials section required?

Yes, you must complete this section in order to submit the ADEA AADSAS application. Some questions, though, will be optional depending on the dental school’s selection.

Does completing this section I don’t have to submit a supplemental application to the school directly?

The answer depends on the dental school. This is a new section in the ADEA AADSAS application and many schools are experimenting with the features in hopes of eliminating a supplemental application. Please check with each school to determine if information, fees, or documents are required outside of ADEA AADSAS.
