It will be a mix of morning and afternoon hours. This is considered a full-time program and you may find it difficult to work while enrolled in the program.
Please email Selective Admissions and let us know the status of your recommendations. Not following recommendation instructions will cause your application to be considered incomplete.
There is not a waitlist. If you don’t get in, you may try again the following year, but you must resubmit the online application again. Please check for any updates on the Dental Hygiene web page. In the rare situation when an accepted student decides not to attend, we will contact the applicant with the next highest points to offer them a space in the program.
