During Application Cycle

Application Timeline

  • Be sure to check out the UF College of Dentistry Application Timeline.
  • September 1 – Historically, our most successful applicants have submitted all application materials to our office by September 1st. The UFCD Office of Admissions deems an application as complete and ready for review by the Admissions Committee once all of the following materials have been received:

1. Verified AADSAS Application – as specified by ADEA guidelines
2. DAT Scores – submit unofficial score reports via email or fax (to 352-846-0311)
3. At least 3 Letters of Evaluation

Apply through ADEA AADSAS

  • The Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (ADEA AADSAS℠) is a centralized application service that simplifies the application process by providing one standard dental school application for AADSAS-participating dental schools. Individuals applying through ADEA AADSAS complete one application which is sent to all dental schools designated by the applicant.
  • The application cycle opens in early June each year and the deadline to submit an AADSAS application for UF College of Dentistry is November 1st. However, it is very important to apply early in the cycle. We consistently receive over half of our total applications by the end of July.
  • ADEA AADSAS provides a wealth of information about how to successfully fill-out, submit, and complete an application.

Respond to your emails

  • UF College of Dentistry will send you an email to notify you when we have received your application from AADSAS. Pay close attention to that email; sometimes we ask for additional information. Be sure to check your junk and spam folders.
  • If your application is incomplete, you will receive a subsequent email outlining what is lacking on your application. Please submit any outstanding documentation as quickly as possible.
  • Remember, it can take 4-6 weeks⤷ for ADEA AADSAS to process your application and submit it to us. Don’t expect to receive an email from us immediately after you click submit on AADSAS.
  • Email is also how the admissions committee notifies applicants of invitations to submit supplemental applications and invitations for interview. Check and double check your junk and spam folders!
