Once a student is accepted into the Dental Hygiene program, transcripts are reviewed by Health Sciences Admissions to determine transfer credit. Only courses completed at a regionally-accredited institution within the U.S., in which the student has earned a grade of “C” or better, are eligible for credit. Following the review, the student is notified of coursework that may need to be completed.
Our accreditation standards dictate that the number of students enrolled must be proportionate to the resources available to the program. Under consideration are: patient supply, financial support, size of facilities (number of clinic and lab stations), equipment and technology available and number of qualified faculty.
