Step 1 - Prepare

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.


  • Most dentists make their career decision in late high school or early university.

  • Take Grade 12 Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Math.

  • Apply to an accredited degree-granting institution (U of S) to complete pre-dentistry studies.

  • Complete two full time (30 credit unit) years of university-level course work between September and April (with an average of at least 75%).  Your two best years of full-time study will be used to calculate your admission average (for example, if you have completed four years of study, your best two years will be used; they don't have to be consecutive years).

  • Complete 30 credit units of specified pre-dent requirements (with an overall average of at least 70%). These requirements can be taken either inside or outside of the required two full-time years of university-level course work (for example, you can complete pre-dent requirements either in the summer, or inside or outside of the required two years of university level course work).

Done with Step 1? It's time to move on to Step 2 - Apply.
