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 ADEA 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 mid-May each year and the deadline to submit an ADEA 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 ADEA 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 ADEA 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!

Check your status on ADEA AADSAS

UF College of Dentistry Office of Admissions works hard to keep your application status up-to-date on the ADEA AADSAS applicant portal. Please check your status there before contacting our office with questions.

What does my ADEA AADSAS status mean for my UF College of Dentistry application?

  • None: Your ADEA AADSAS application has not yet been verified. You may still need to provide information to ADEA AADSAS. Your application is not in the review process.
  • Received/Under Review: We have begun to initially process your application. You’re waiting on us; your application is in the review process.
  • Received/Waiting Additional Information: Your application is incomplete. We’re waiting on you; your application will NOT move forward in the review process. This means we’ve sent you an email detailing that you still need to submit LOEs, DAT scores, citizenship/visa information, supplemental application materials, etc.
  • Invited for Interview: We’ve emailed an interview invitation to you. Be sure to respond to that email!
  • Received/Application Complete: You have completed all the steps in the application process (including an interview) and are awaiting an official decision from the admissions committee. You’re waiting on us again.

Complete the FAFSA

The 2023-24 FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, opens on October 1, 2022. The University of Florida’s “On-Time” deadline to receive the results of the 2023-24 FAFSA from the federal processor is December 15, 2022. Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the FAFSA well before December 15, 2022 to ensure that the federal processor has time to analyze and send the results of the FAFSA to UF. The FAFSA allows applicants to list up to 10 schools and the UF federal school code is 001535.
