Evaluated Dental School Transcripts

Submit your dental school academic record (transcript) to Education Credential Evaluators (ECE) or World Education Services (WES) and request a course-by-course (not summary) evaluation of your record. NOTE: If your transcript is not in English, it must be translated into English as well as evaluated on a course-by-course basis.


ADEA CAAPID will distribute a copy of your original WES or ECE course-by-course evaluation in English to each program selected. To request an original WES or ECE evaluation, go to the preferred service's website, create an account, and follow instructions provided for submitting your documents for evaluation and translation into English.

1. If the required course-by-course evaluated transcript is NOT received, your application will be considered incomplete until the document arrives at ADEA CAAPID.

2. Send the Transcript Matching Form to ADEA CAAPID along with your ECE or WES course-by-course evaluation. The omission of the Transcript Matching Form may delay the processing of your ADEA CAAPID application, particularly if you used another name while attending dental school..

3. Keep the evaluation in the closed envelope and place the Transcript Matching Form along with evaluation in another envelope before mailing the document to ADEA CAAPID.

4. Dental school ECE or WES course-by-course evaluations may be submitted with the application or sent directly to ADEA CAAPID by ECE or WES. Applicants can check to see if ADEA CAAPID has received the evaluated transcript by monitoring the Status section of the ADEA CAAPID application.

5. The dental school ECE or WES course-by-course evaluation must be received to complete your ADEA CAAPID application.

6. Only send one copy of your ECE or WES evaluation. If you are applying to 1 or 10 programs, only one copy will be accepted.

7. If you send an ECE or WES evaluation to ADEA CAAPID they will be sent to all programs which you have designated. Some programs may only accept the ECE or WES, but if both are sent to ADEA CAAPID both will be sent to all programs designated.

8. Evaluations should be mailed to CAAPID Processing Department, PO Box 9116, Watertown, MA 02471.


If You Cannot Submit an Original Course-by-Course Evaluation

Occasionally, applicants that apply to advanced placement programs may be unable to obtain an official transcript to be submitted for evaluation. This can occur, for example, when an educational institution closes, or due to conflict or other extenuating circumstances.

If the applicant is unable to have an original dental school transcript submitted to WES or ECE to be evaluated course-by-course, select "Request for Exception" in the Colleges and Universities/Dental Schools Attended Section. The applicant will then be prompted to provide an explanation about why a transcript is not available. This explanation will be distributed to each program selected.
