Canadian Students

Applicants must be graduates of ACCREDITED Canadian dental hygiene programs.

Due to the International status of Canadian students, a slightly different application process is needed.

Canadian citizens may enroll as either part-time or full-time students.

  • Full time consists of a minimum of 12 credits a semester undergraduate
  • Canadian Landed Immigrants may enroll only as full-time students and require a visa to enter to U.S.
  • Regardless of whether you enroll part time or full time, we will issue you an I-20 form, which will allow you to enter the U.S. in F-1 (student) status.
  • Canadian students are allowed only one online course per semester.

Once accepted, it is very important that all Canadian students contact Carol Blackburn during the first week of classes to complete the I-20 process. See above for contact information.
