Deadline for receiving applications

January 31st is the deadline for receiving applications. Materials postmarked after this deadline will not be accepted. 

Notification of acceptance to the Dental Hygiene program will be sent to applicants in the first week of March. If you’re accepted, you must forward a non-refundable deposit in the amount of $500 which will be applied toward the cost of your dental hygiene fees for the first year of the program. You must do so before the deadline given or lose your place in the program.

College transcripts

You must submit one official transcript of your academic record from each college or university you have attended. The transcript can be considered official only if it is unopened in the institution's envelope and stamped with the seal of the college or university.

Northern Arizona University

If you are accepted into the Dental Hygiene program and are not currently enrolled at the university you must also be admitted to Northern Arizona University before starting classes in the fall. This is a separate application procedure; contact Undergraduate Admissions for information and an undergraduate application.

It is not necessary to be admitted to the university prior to applying to the Dental Hygiene program. However, admission to the university is required in order to begin the Dental Hygiene program. You will need to send OFFICIAL transcripts to the university’s registrar. The registrar will not accept transcripts from the Dental Hygiene Department.
