BS in Dental Hygiene: Online degree completion program


The Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene Degree Completion Program (BSDHCP) is specifically designed for dental hygienists with an associate's degree, diploma, or certificate in dental hygiene from a regionally accredited institution. Recently, we have decided to begin admitting students from regionally accredited institutions who are currently enrolled in an associate's degree, diploma, or certificate programs in dental hygiene. Students currently in a program must work more closely with the academic advisor for the Degree Completion Program to determine eligibility.  This program is offered through NAU Extended Campuses.

The BSDHCP will enhance your clinical knowledge and promote career advancement in:

  • management
  • education
  • public health
  • research

With the degree, you can move into a new field related to dental hygiene, pursue a master's degree, or strengthen professional skills in:

  • communication
  • evidence-based practice
  • computer use
  • statistics

You can study anywhere—all classes are online.

This program consists of 300/400 level college courses. Upon completion of these upper-division courses, you will receive your bachelor's degree.
