Admission Requirement(s)

You must secure departmental approval before you can register for courses (see Application Process). Approval will only be considered if you meet the following requirements:

  • You must have completed grade 11 or grade 12 biology.
  • You must currently be working in a dental office.
  • If you are an international student, you must also have a dental diploma/degree.

Those should include your academic transcripts showing your biology course result, a letter from your employer and, if you are an international student, a copy of your original dental diploma/degree. If your documentation is not in English, you must provide translated versions along with copies of the originals. If the name on your documents does not match your current name, you must submit documentation explaining the name change (such as a marriage certificate). Once your documents have been verified, you can register for the first course.
