What tests are
required to apply to ADEA CAAPID programs?
Most ADEA CAAPID programs require applicants to submit their National Board Examination (NBDE or INBDE) results and TOEFL exam scores. Applicants should review the
CAAPID Directory to identify specific program requirements.
How are official NBDE results uploaded to ADEA CAAPID?
Applicants must request their National Board results from the
American Dental Association (ADA).
The steps to request results are:
- Click on “Request INBDE or NBDE Part I and Part II Results”, under “Send Official Score Reports and National Board Results Requests.”
Applicants will need a DENTPIN and password to login.
- Once logged in and after verifying personal information, applicants select ADEA CAAPID on the “Result Recipient Selection” page.
- Enter payment information and submit the request. An email confirmation is sent to the address on file.
Results are sent to ADEA CAAPID within five (5) business days.
How long are NBDE results valid?
NBDE results provided by the ADA do not have an expiration date, rather, individual ADEA CAAPID programs may specify date parameters regarding the exam results.
Is the ADA ADAT required to apply to ADEA CAAPID programs?
The ADA ADAT is not required by ADEA CAAPID programs, but if submitted as part of the application, it may be considered by some programs. Applicants should review the
ADEA CAAPID Directory to identify each program’s unique requirements.
Is the ETS TOEFL required to apply to ADEA CAAPID programs?
All ADEA CAAPID programs have ETS TOEFL requirements and some programs have score requirements by test section. Applicants may self-report their ETS TOEFL test results within the ADEA CAAPID application for either the internet-based test (TOEFL iBT) or paper-based test.
Applicants may also provide official ETS TOEFL score reports directly to ADEA CAAPID if they choose. Official score reports must be provided electronically and are only accepted directly from ETS. To have official TOEFL scores sent directly to ADEA CAAPID, please request that score reports are sent
to the score code for institution B451: American Dental Education Association’s ADEA CAAPID.
