Application Procedure

The School of Dentistry participates in the Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS). All new applicants and reapplicants seeking admission to the School of Dentistry should apply through this national dental application service coordinating agency.

Applicants should apply online at starting on June 1 of the preceding academic year for entry the following fall (i.e., for matriculation in the fall of 2022, you may start applying on June 1, 2021). The application service (AADSAS - American Association of Dental Schools Application Service) must receive your application no later than February 1 to be processed and forwarded to designated dental schools.

Early application is strongly encouraged to give the Admissions Committee more time to evaluate the applicants. All required credentials necessary to complete the application must be received by March 1. An incomplete application after this deadline will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

At the time an applicant submits an application through AADSAS, a $60 nonrefundable application service fee should be sent directly to the Creighton University Dental Admissions Office. This fee should be made payable to Creighton University and mailed to the Dental Admissions Office.

All correspondence should be addressed to the Creighton University Dental Admissions Office with whom all credentials must be filed. Application credentials should be directed to:

Dental Admissions Office
Creighton University
2500 California Plaza
Omaha, Nebraska 68178

All credentials become the property of Creighton University upon submission and are not returnable.

The Creighton University Dental Admissions Office will inform the applicant when application has been received from AADSAS and will request that the following information be submitted to complete the application:

  1. Official Dental Admission Test (DAT) scores. (These may be submitted to Creighton anytime they are available).
  2. Supplementary application form, photograph, and processing fee.
