Process Overview

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  The College of Dentistry has requested the approval of the University of Saskatchewan to change the qualifications for admission for the 2015-2016 admissions cycle as follows:

1. To require applicants to have completed three full time (30 credit unit) years of university level course work leading to an undergraduate level degree between September and April as a condition of admission.

2. To require a 6-credit human physiology course (PHSI 208.6 or it's equivalent) as a prerequisite for admission.

3. To require a Criminal Record Check as a condition of admission.

The results of this request will be posted to the website as soon as they are available.  Applicants for the 2014-2015 admission cycle will not be affected by these changes.
