Transfer Admissions

On rare instances the School of Dentistry will consider a student for transfer from a U.S. or Canadian dental school if a space is available at the beginning of the second year of dental school (D2 class) and a perfect match exists between the curricula of both schools. A course curriculum for the first year of dental school must be completed when you submit a Transfer Interest Form.

The student must be in excellent academic standing at the transfer school and is required to have letters of evaluation from the school’s academic dean and other faculty.

In addition, the student must have a valid reason for his or her desire to transfer to the VCU School of Dentistry. He or she must not be involved or have been involved in any academic or honor code violations. Copies of a student’s original ADEA Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS) documents may be used to support his or her transfer material. The Admissions Committee will judge each case on individual merit.  If the merit is accepted or approved by the Admissions Committee, each applicant will be contacted by email in December or January to complete the remaining documentation needed for transfer admissions review and for a possible interview.
