Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the following exceptions and considerations will be taken regarding requirements to the UNLV School of Dental Medicine application process for the next admissions cycle(s). As developments or changes occur, we will update the admissions information on this website.
DAT Test Scores
We recommend taking the DAT no later than October. However, we will work with each applicant on a case-by-case basis.
Online Prerequisite Coursework
Online courses may be acceptable for the Spring and Summer 2021 semesters given the transition of many colleges from in-person instruction to online instruction.
Pass/Fail Prerequisite Coursework
Given that some colleges/universities have required Pass/Fail grades, and others have made it optional, all applications will be reviewed without prejudice. However, we recommend taking prerequisite courses for letter grades if given the option for the Spring and Summer 2021 semesters only.
AADSAS application deadline remains January 1, 2022.
All operations are currently stationed remotely, so the preferred method for receiving inquiries is via email. For questions, concerns, or additional details, please email email@example.com.
