Admissions Policies

Applicants to the AEGD program at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry must have a DMD/DDS from a dental education program in the United States or Canada which is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA). At this time the program does not accept graduates from international dental programs.

Applicants should have successfully completed Part I of the National Board Examination prior to applying for admission and must complete part II before they can begin the program. Candidates for admission should possess good academic credentials (GPA not less than 2.8) and should demonstrate a definite interest in post-graduate training.

The program is limited to six total residents. The application process requires the completion of a PASS application available at www.adea.org . Applications must be completed and filed with the PASS application service by November 1. Applications will not be considered until all records and fees have been received. After the November 1 deadline, applicants should contact Ms. Sheila Gandy in the Department of Patient Management for an application.

The completed PASS application should include all documents requested by PASS. The PASS website has a connecting link to the University of Detroit Mercy's AEGD program.

In addition the UDM AEGD program REQUIRES two additional materials listed below. Please send these items directly to the UDM AEGD program by November 1. Failure to include these required materials will result in the delay of application consideration:
