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. Applicants complete one application for multiple programs.  

The ADEA PASS Search Engine allos applicants to view information for each participating program with program details searchable by name, program type and/or state. Access the ADEA PASS Search Engine at 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.   

The ADEA PASS cycle is open from May through February each year. Applicants can create only one application per cycle. Applicants must begin a brand new application each cycle and resubmit all application materials. 

It is the applicant’s responsibility to read, understand and follow all ADEA PASS and program-specific instructions.
