Applicants with strong credentials and competitive applications are invited for a personal interview with individual members of the Admissions Committee. In addition to academic achievement, interviewers look for motivation, character, interpersonal and communication skills, maturity, service ethic, evidence of manual dexterity, and knowledge of the dental profession. Interviews begin in the early fall. The full Admissions Committee meets in November to consider applicants who have been interviewed and to make initial selections for the entering class.
Each applicant who submits a completed application may expect a response when a final admission decision is made, but not before
December 1. Applicants are to check their OU Supplemental Application for a decision letter.
Successful applicants are asked to submit an advanced tuition deposit in order to reserve a position in the class and will receive a separate email with information to set up the OUHSC email account. Alternates are notified that they have been placed on a waiting list to be selected, should an opening in the class become available.
