Selection Process

The CAAPID application becomes available on March 1, 2017. The deadline for the University of Michigan is June 15, 2017.  The ITDP entering class of 2018 will begin in January 2018.  A draft schedule of the first semester will be available here soon!

Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first served basis with review of complete applications beginning in June.  Early application is encouraged to remain competitive.

Upon review of complete applications, qualified applicants will be invited for a personal interview, which is mandatory for acceptance into the program.  For the entering class of 2018, our interview(s) will be held between July and September 2017. This consists of a series of interviews as well as a practical examination on manikins. There is a $250 (US) fee associated with the personal interview to cover costs associated with the administration of the Dental Assessment Examination.  The test fee is non-refundable and must be received prior to arriving for the personal interview.  This examination fee is not applied toward any tuition.  Additional information on the personal interview will be provided to invited applicants in advance of the interview.  If you are selected to interview, you will be contacted by email.

After the interview, offers of admission will be sent to selected candidates until the program class has been filled.  Upon notification of acceptance, candidates are required to submit a non-refundable enrollment fee of $1,500 as directed in the acceptance letter.  This fee will be applied to the first semester tuition.

Candidates who matriculate will receive instructions about submitting a notarized copy of the dental degree or diploma. If the diploma is not in English, a translation must be submitted as well. Provisional certificates are not accepted.

We do maintain an alternate list of candidates who were not initially offered admission.  Candidates will be contacted by email if they are offered a seat on the alternate list.
