Q: What are eForms?
A: eForms comprise a library of electronic evaluation
resources utilized by applicants and evaluators to request, track,
and submit online Institution and Professional Evaluations. The
applicant must have a preferred email address for each evaluator in
order to submit an eForm Professional Evaluation request.
Q: Should I request Professional Evaluations since they
are now optional?
A: You are welcome to assign up to two Professional
Evaluations to any program you designate. Since all programs will
receive your ETS PPI Report, Professional Evaluations are
supplemental. Check with the programs' requirements (e.g., in the
ADEA PASS Search Engine) to see if Professional Evaluations are
required or recommended.
Q: If I attended a dental school in
my home country, and my school is not listed as a school that
participates in eForms, how can my school be added to the
A: Tell the dean of your dental school about eForms. If
your dean would like your dental school to participate in eForms,
request that he or she contact ADEA PASS.
Q: I submitted my ADEA PASS
application and my evaluation has not been completed. Can my
application be re-opened to add another evaluation?
A: Yes, contact the Customer Service Department to have
your application re-opened for any designation for which your
application is not yet complete. You may delete the request to your
evaluators only if the request status is shown as "New" (that is,
not yet sent out). You cannot delete an evaluation if it is "In
Progress" or "Complete." You will have the option to add an
existing evaluator to this designation or add a new evaluator. You
will then have to re-submit your application. (You will not have to
submit your payment information again.)
Q: May I submit eForm evaluations
and paper evaluations?
A: We encourage you to use ONLY eForm evaluations when
customizing because you can directly control the matching of
individual professional evaluations with each designated program;
however, you may submit a combination of eForm evaluations and
paper evaluations if an eForm version of one or more professional
evaluations cannot be obtained.
Q: If my evaluator is sending a
paper evaluation by mail, will it show up on my ADEA PASS
application portal summary screen?
A: When the evaluator submits a paper evaluation, it will
appear on your ADEA PASS Application portal summary screen as soon
as it is received and processed.

eForms Professional and Institution Evaluations, how long does it
take for the evaluator to receive a request to complete my
A: Once you click the submit button, evaluators
immediately receive an email requesting that they submit an
evaluation on your behalf.
Q: Once I have submitted my request
to evaluators, can I change my requests?
A: Yes. You may delete the request to your evaluators
only if the request status is "New." You cannot delete an
evaluation if it is "In Progress" or "Complete."
Q: I selected the incorrect waiver
statement. How do I correct this error?
A: You can only change this if the evaluation status is
"New." You may delete the evaluation request and submit a new
request. The evaluator will receive an email notice stating that
the evaluation has been deleted. The evaluator will then receive
another evaluation request notification email if you submit a new

Professional Evaluation request to an evaluator?

Professional Evaluation section, select the evaluator, and click

your ADEA PASS application and select Professional Evaluation or
Institution Evaluation, and your summary list will appear. Click on
the symbol in the Delete Column to the right of the evaluator's
Q: I am having problems with one
of my eForms. I submitted a request and it is confirmed, but it
never reaches the evaluator. What should I do?

in eForms. Request that your evaluator use the login information
provided within the email. Otherwise, have your evaluator contact
ADEA PASS at firstname.lastname@example.org .

out eForms, but the website says that this evaluation is still "In
Progress" on my application. What should I do?
