It is not necessary that an applicant complete the entire application at once. The applicant may save the application and work on it over a period of time. Once it is submitted however, only minor changes can be made online. Check with AADSAS to determine what information can be edited after submission of the application.

Transfer students

Because of differences in curricula between dental schools, transfer positions are extremely limited. The UMMC Dental School Admissions Committee reserves these considerations for extreme and exceptional circumstances only.
