Dental Hygiene
General Education (Pre-req)

These courses must be completed by the end of the fall semester prior to the deadline date for the Dental Hygiene Program. Please consult the current Admissions Packet for questions.

If you have previous college credits, or are currently attending another college, you may be able to make some course substitutions. Course substitutions are not automatic, and some courses will not be substituted. Your advisor must request that the substitution be made and it must be approved by the division responsible for the required course. You should always consult with your advisor before taking a course other than the course required by your program. You may be required to provide a course syllabus for courses other than the one required by your program.
