    Academic Prerequisites

    Academic preparation must include the following specific requirements, both in time and in credit hours (Please note, eight semester hours in science and six semester hours in English are generally equivalent to a one-year course):

    Chemistry:

    • Eight semester hours (12 quarter hours) of Inorganic or General Chemistry with laboratory.
    • Eight semester hours (12 quarter hours) of Organic Chemistry with laboratory.

    Biology:

    • Eight semester hours (12 quarter hours) of General Biology or Zoology with laboratory.
    • Additional courses strongly encouraged include: Anatomy, Physiology, and Statistics.

    Physics:

    • Eight semester hours (12-quarter hours) with laboratory.
    • Sufficient prerequisite mathematics should be taken as well as high school Physics.

    English:

    • Six semester hours (9-quarter hours).
    • First-year college courses in composition will satisfy the requirement.
    • Three semester hours of credit in literature may be used to satisfy part of this requirement if the course description confirms that writing was integral to the course.

    Biochemistry:

    • Three or four semester hours (2.7 quarter hours)

    Microbiology:

    • Three semester hours (2 quarter hours)

    The dental admissions committee reserves the right to modify the prerequisites when additional courses are necessary to an applicant's preparation for dental school. Grades of C or higher are expected in prerequisite courses; however, high B grades or higher are truly more competitive.

    Courses in sociology and psychology, especially human behavior are highly recommended, as are business courses. If a student wishes to strengthen his/her academic credentials, he or she should consult with predental advisors at their present college/university regarding the proper course of action. When possible, the director of Dental Admissions may be available to offer specific guidance to prospective applicants; however, all applicants are strongly advised to consult with advisors at their schools.

    Academic Achievement

    A minimum GPA in science courses of 3.0 is recommended, but GPAs of 3.5 or higher are considered more competitive. A full-time academic load (15-18 semester hours) of three or four science courses each term is encouraged, particularly during the junior and senior undergraduate years.

    Note - Canadian Students:

    Ontario Residents:

    • For those who have completed Grade 13 or OAC, full credit is given for Grade 13 or OAC English toward fulfilling the English requirement (grades of “C” or higher are required in order to be acknowledged). University prep courses in English are also considered.
    • Grade 13 or OAC science courses do not fulfill the requirements in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. However, credit may be given for these courses toward meeting the requirement of eight semester hours in each science when these courses are also taken in a university.
  •  

    Application Procedure

    The School of Dentistry utilizes the Associated American Dental Schools Application Services (AADSAS). This service is available to all students applying to dental schools participating in the application service. When you use AADSAS, you complete just one application. Applications are available from June through January 15 of each year. Simply visit the American Dental Education Association's (ADEA) website to submit your electronic application. A non-refundable supplemental application fee of $125.00 (U.S. currency, money order) is due at the time of application and should be sent directly to the School of Dentistry, along with a "2x2” photograph with the applicant's signature and AADSAS ID number on back.

    Office of Dental Admissions
    University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry
    2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
    Detroit, MI 48208-2576

    By agreement among American dental schools, the earliest date of acceptance is December 1. For up-to-date information, please see the American Dental Education Association’s (ADEA) application website. Applicants are accepted from December 1 until the class is filled.

    Note - Canadian Students

    Canadian students must contact the admissions office during the first week of classes to complete the I-20 process.

  •  

    Dental Admission Test (DAT)

    All applicants for admission are required to take the Dental Admission Test (DAT), a national standardized test. Scores from the DAT are an important component to one's application to dental school and should be recognized as such by the student. Members of an admissions committee frequently use the DAT to predict a student's success or potential failure in the school's curriculum. Additional information about the DAT can be obtained by visiting the American Dental Association's (ADA) website at https://www.ada.org/en/education-careers/dental-admission-test.

    Students are advised to take the DAT only after basic requirements in chemistry and biology have been completed. An applicant should try to achieve competitive scores of 20 or higher in each section. Retaking the DAT, with the goal of achieving more competitive scores is encouraged. DAT scores older than two years from the time of the test are not acceptable.

    The Canadian DAT is acceptable for applicants attending Canadian universities or colleges at  http://www.cda-adc.ca.

    DAT scores after December 31st will not be accepted.

  •  

    Letters of Recommendation

    A composite letter of recommendation is required from the applicant's college/university preprofessional advisory committee. If no such committee exists, a minimum of two letters from science faculty within non-plant or non-environmental disciplines of biology, chemistry or physics--by whom the candidate has been instructed and earned a grade --are required. Applicants are encouraged to spend time in a dental office and are also required to have a letter from a dentist attesting to the applicant  having spent a reasonable amount of time with the practitioner exploring the dental profession. An applicant who feels that the application did not allow explanations of certain aspects of scholastic history may submit a written personal statement directly to the Office of Dental Admissions.

    General Guidelines for Letters of Recommendations: Letters of recommendation must appear on official college/university or business (dental office) letterhead. Professionally, they must include an original signature with typewritten name beneath the signature as well as professional title. Faculty should ensure the course (code, title and term) for which you were enrolled and they instructed is conveyed within the content of their letter. It is highly recommended that letters of recommendation from TAs, graduate student instructors or PhD candidates be cosigned by the course director or department chairperson.

  •  

    Selection Factors

    The director of Dental Admissions reviews all completed applications and together with the Dental Admissions Committee selects applicants for admission to the School of Dentistry.

    Selection is based upon various components of a dental school application which may include cognitive and non-cognitive components of an application: difficulty of an undergraduate curriculum, academic performance in undergraduate studies, DAT scores, and personal characteristics and potential for success as determined by letters of recommendation, personal statements, and personal interviews, to name a few. The dental admissions committee requests an interview for the purpose of gaining information not readily gained from the application; interviews are by invitation only to academically qualified applicants.

  •  

    Reapplication Requirements and Suggestions

    Submit your application early. American dental schools operate on a rolling admission cycle; applicants are accepted from December 1st until the class is filled. With numerous applications being received by dental schools each year, and an increased quality in those applications, dental schools have been filling their incoming classes earlier and earlier.

    Continue to enroll FULL-TIME in upper-division (graduate) biologically-based science courses (non-plant or non- environmental). If you have already obtained your BS degree, it is suggested you begin working toward a master's degree (preferably in an area of biology, basic medical sciences, or public health).

    Submit new letters of recommendation. Letters of recommendation should be submitted from current professors each year you apply.

  •

    Canadian Students

    Canadian citizens do not qualify for U.S. Federal Financial Aid programs unless the applicant is also a U.S. citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. (“Green Card”). The University of Detroit Mercy Scholarship and Financial Aid Office has limited information on alternative loans for non-residents of the United States (these loans usually require a U.S. co-signer).

    We suggest Canadian applicants contact financial aid/loan institutions in Canada.  University of Detroit Mercy is an approved professional university outside of Canada and many of our Ontario students receive OSAP.

    FAFSA and Non-FAFSA Filing

    The programs listed here can be very helpful in supplementing your resources, although we encourage you to explore other sources of aid. There are additional scholarship and loan opportunities available through local community organizations, religious organizations, or companies for which you, your parents or spouse are employed.

    Be resourceful; look around!

    FAFSA Filing Programs

    Health Professions Loan (HPL)

    Awards typically range from $2,000 to $5,000 with a fixed interest rate at 5 percent and no origination fee, although the amount may vary on the availability of funds. To be considered for the HPL program funds, students must provide parental income/asset information on the FAFSA regardless of the dependency status by April 15.

    Dental Merit Grant (DMG)

    Up to 10 students are selected to receive $5,000 to $10,000 per year from Detroit Mercy over the span of four years. If you are a recipient of the Dental Merit Grant, the awarded amount will be applied toward your tuition, reducing your loan eligibility. The grant is renewable as long as satisfactory academic progress is maintained. Factors considered in selecting awardees include:

    • Cumulative Undergraduate G.P.A.
    • Undergraduate Science G.P.A.
    • Biology, Chemistry and Physics G.P.A.
    • DAT Score

    Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan

    Borrowers may apply for up to $44,944 per academic year to a cumulative total of $224,000. Interest will accumulate while in school and is the responsibility of the student. Minimum payments can be made as low as $50 per month. Principal and interest may be deferred until after graduation, but interest will accrue and be capitalized at repayment. The interest rate for loans made between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022 is 5.28 percent with 1.057 percent loan fee, subject to change annually.

    Federal Direct Graduate Plus Loan

    Graduate PLUS loans are federally sponsored loans for students attending graduate school allowing students to borrow up to the full cost of education, less other financial aid received including Federal Direct Loans. Borrowers are responsible for all interest that accrues on the Graduate PLUS loan; unpaid interest will be added to the loan principal, therefore the borrower will pay interest on the combined amount. For borrowers who are certified by their school to be attending at least half time will be placed into in-school deferment, which will not require payment while the borrower is in school. The interest rate is currently 6.28 percent and there is a 4.228 percent origination fee charged by the federal government, subject to change annually.

    *Borrower must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resided. A credit check is required.

    Non-FAFSA Filing Programs

    Private/Alternative Loans

    Private or Alternative Education Loans provide students and families with alternatives to the federal loan programs. These are credit-based loans and most students will require a co-borrower. Credit worthy students and co-borrowers may find competitive interest and fees compared to the federal loan programs.

    Detroit Mercy partners with ELM Resources to assist with the lender selection process. ELM Resources maintains a comprehensive list of lenders offering private loans, which we encourage you to use as you begin your search.

    Please note: Borrow benefits can differ greatly between private and federal loans; please consider your options carefully when deciding to borrow.

    Planning and Program Costs

    Plan ahead

    Plan ahead and prepare yourself for the costs of education. Successful financing of your education begins with management of your personal credit. Listed are steps you can take to ease the transition to dental or dental hygiene school:

    1. Get a copy of your credit history. This informative document should be used to identify any problem areas. Upon review, you may be surprised at what you find! Correct any problems now, before you enter dental school, or apply for loans.
    2. Pay off any outstanding credit card or loan balances. If you are going to rely on financial aid/student loans to provide money for your living expenses, you will probably not have enough excess money to support non-educational debt. Although many of us think a personal car as essential, you may find it difficult to meet your daily cost of living and support a car payment.
    3. Consult your parents and/or spouse. Educate them on the costs of this program and the long-term ramifications, i.e. the debt burden you may have upon graduation. Perhaps family may be able to assist you financially.

    Canadian students are not eligible for U.S. federal funds. They may choose to finance their education through Provincial aid such as OSAP or banking institutions.

    If you have any questions regarding any of the information provided, please contact Financial Aid Coordinator Angela Orlando at 313-494-6617 or orlandan@udmercy.edu.

    You are encouraged to apply for financial assistance prior to admittance to the School of Dentistry; funds are not committed until you officially enroll.

    Program Costs

    Estimated cost for a first-year dental student based upon 2021-2022  costs

    The following is an estimated cost for a first-year dental student based upon 2021-2022 costs. It is provided as a guide to assist you in planning. Tuition and other fees are subject to annual increases and must be paid by the first day of each academic term. Students should anticipate annual increases in the order of 4 percent.
