Please carefully review the checklist to ensure that you submit all required documents in the appropriate manner along with your secondary application by the deadline.

Application Process

Please begin by submitting your primary application to the Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS). The later you apply, the more competition you will have as many of the seats will have already been filled due to the rolling admission process, so apply early!


Please submit your secondary application online, then follow-up with the additional documentation outlined in the secondary application checklist below. The first time you sign in, click "first time user account creation" below the login boxes and on the application itself, select "Fall 2016" for term of entry.

Next Steps

To give you peace of mind, we will e-mail you when your application is received. If the Admissions Committee determines you are eligible to interview, we will contact you to schedule an appointment. We anticipate we will begin interviewing in early September.

We are happy to answer your questions as you navigate through the application process,
so please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help.


When the Admissions Committee reviews your application, they consider all in-progress/planned coursework (including both prerequisite and non-prerequisite courses) as well as any degree in progress when making their decision. Any change in your plans must be submitted to the Committee for review and approval. If you are ultimately accepted to the program and you do not finish your planned degree or coursework as listed on your application, your admission could be affected.

Prospective students are expected to act with honesty, forthrightness, and integrity throughout the admissions process. It is expected that all applicants will submit accurate information in the ADEA AADSAS and the WesternU Supplemental application. Violation of the ADEA Applicant Code of Conduct may result in the suspension of the application and/or other actions, including rescission of your admission to dental school, or the possibility of dismissal from the College Of Dental Medicine, if enrolled.
