2018 ADEA PASS Application Instructions
What is ADEA PASS?
The American Dental Education Association Postdoctoral
Application Support Service (ADEA PASS) is a centralized application service
for advanced dental education programs. Save time and energy by completing one
application for multiple programs. In addition to the ADEA PASS application, advanced
dental education programs can also collect supplemental information and have
different requirements and admissions deadlines.
The ADEA PASS Search Engine allows applicants to view
information for each participating program. Applicants may search for programs
by name, program type and/or state. Access the ADEA PASS Search Engine at programpages.passweb.org/search.
Individual programs provide the content of their ADEA PASS Search Engine
entries; therefore, all programs are responsible for the accuracy of their
program information. ADEA advises applicants to contact the programs directly
if there are questions or discrepancies.
ADEA PASS is open from May through February each year. Applicants
can create only one application per cycle. Application materials from prior
application cycles do not carry over. Applicants must begin a brand new
application each cycle and resubmit all application materials, including dental
school transcripts, Professional Evaluation Forms, and the Institution
It is the applicant’s responsibility to read, understand and
follow all ADEA PASS and program-specific instructions.
