IF YOU DO NOT MEET WITH A HEALTH SCIENCE COUNSELOR TO GO OVER PREREQUISITES THERE COULD BE EXTENSIVE DELAYS IN THE PROCESSING OF YOUR APPLICATION THAT COULD JEOPARDIZE CONSIDERATION INTO THE DENTAL HYGIENE PROGRAM.
- Applicants must complete program prerequisite courses by the end of the preceding fall semester.
- The Dental Hygiene Program requires a 4-5 unit course in intermediate algebra or higher as a prerequisite to admission into the Dental Hygiene Program.
All prerequisite classes are in Semester units, and you must complete the required Semester units. If your college units are in Quarter units, you will need to convert these to Semester units to determine if you have the required prerequisite course credit. You may need to file a course substitution request form for these classes to be considered. (Contact a Health Sciences Counselor for assistance with all prerequisite course questions).
Advanced placement classes are not accepted as prerequisite coursework at this time.
