There are six basic admission requirements for the UIC dental school's Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program. These include requirements on local residency, requisite academic achievements and citizenship. The program has additional requirements based on national or international status.
The University of Illinois at Chicago requires that students applying to the DMD program be Illinois residents, have earned a bachelor's degree with an overall "C" average from an accredited college or university no later than June of the year prior to admission. Additionally, students must demonstrate the legal right to reside in the US as a citizen or permanent resident, and they must meet the safety and technical standards required by the program. Finally, prospective students must complete and submit the application to UIC by the December 1 deadline. The DMD program does not consider or admit out-of-state students; however, the combined DMD/PhD program is open to both in-state and out-of-state applicants.
The UIC website provides a complete list of the documents and fees required for submitting an application to the program. All applicants must submit proof of US residency, national board examination scores, dental education transcripts, dental diploma and proof of English proficiency. UIC only accepts officially notarized documents in English. All documents must be digitally submitted with the supplemental application.
