ADEA CAAPID application statuses are provided. Once an application is complete
for a designated program, no further admissions updates will be provided via
ADEA CAAPID but will be provided directly by the program. ADEA CAAPID makes no
determinations on the eligibility of an applicant for a program, nor does ADEA
CAAPID have any influence over the admissions status of an applicant. No
information on admissions decisions or enrollment status will be provided by
ADEA CAAPID. This information will be provided by the individual dental schools
to which an applicant has applied, and questions regarding offers of admission
should be directed to each individual program.
