ADEA CAAPID Application Instructions



Program Selection

Each applicant must select at least one program on the “Add Program” tab to begin the application. Only one is required, but it is recommended that the applicant add all programs he or she intends to apply to when the account is created. Selected programs are also referred to as designations.


Selecting Programs

The “Add Program” tab contains a list of all programs participating in the ADEA CAAPID application; the list can be filtered by school or location. Using the “Add Program” tab, applicants can apply to any available program by clicking the blue plus sign next to the program name; applicants can remove any designated programs prior to submitting the application for that program by clicking the “Undo” button under the program name. Additional available programs can be added at any time by returning to this page.


Submitting Applications

The “Submit Application” tab displays all designated programs and the associated ADEA CAAPID application fees for those programs. Applicants ready to submit an application to a program can do so by selecting the “Pay and Submit This Program” button beneath the program name for each program for which they are ready to submit an application. If the “Pay and Submit This Program” button does not appear, required application components for the program have not yet been completed.


Checking Application Status

The “Check Status” tab allows applicants to check on the status of their application for each submitted designation, as well as the receipt status for their official foreign transcript evaluation, letters of evaluation and official Educational Testing Service Test of English as a Foreign Language (ETS TOEFL) scores. 

Only 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.
