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.
IMPORTANT: 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.
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.
