Dental hygiene education requires 31 hours of general education requirements and 2 years of DHYG curriculum including a summer session for completion. Applications for the Dental Hygiene Program are received until the last day of February each year. Enrollment in the program is limited with the maximum number of 28 positions available per class. Students are accepted into the program in strict accordance with very specific admission criteria that is described in the application packet.

Official transcripts from all Colleges and Universities must  be included in the application materials. It is the student's responsibility to make application each year.
