ADEA and CAAPID Policies

Refund Policy
It is a vital part of the application process that applicants review the instructions carefully. Once an application is submitted to ADEA CAAPID, refunds are not granted.


Release of Information Confidentiality
All information submitted in your application is treated as confidential. Information about applicants who submitted applications to participating dental programs will be used to create rosters and report data. Such use is an inherent part of the admission process and will not disclose individually identifiable information, except for the purpose of creating and maintaining rosters of enrolled applicants.


Release of Documents
Copies of dental school WES or ECE course-by-course evaluations, Letters of Evaluation and information submitted in the ADEA CAAPID application are only released to the advanced placement programs designated in the Program Designation section of an applicant's ADEA CAAPID application. ADEA CAAPID does not release original/copies of documents or completed ADEA CAAPID applications to applicants, dental school faculty, dental school admissions counselors, or other parties.


ADEA Policy
The policies of the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) that govern the Centralized Application for Advanced Placement for International Dentists (CAAPID) are recommended by the ADEA CAAPID Advisory Group, an official committee of the Association. ADEA CAAPID makes every effort to process and transmit application materials to the advanced placement programs designated by the applicant. The Association, however, assumes no responsibility for delays in processing application materials caused by the applicant's failure to follow instructions or circumstances beyond ADEA CAAPID's control. It is the applicant's responsibility to monitor his/her ADEA CAAPID application and report any discrepancies or problems.


The American Dental Education Association does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, marital status, age, or handicap. Such information in the ADEA CAAPID application is requested only for the purpose of gathering and reporting applicant flow data, or to confirm information used to process the application.
