Dental Hygiene Clinic
The Basic Licensure Track of the BSDH program admits one cohort each year. Program admission is separate from University admission. Program applications are available October 1 through February 28. Acceptance to this program is competitive, meaning that the most highly qualified applicants will be accepted into the class. Eligibility requirements include completion of core curriculum prior to program enrollment. Size and quality of applicant pool varies, so chance of admission is fluid. Typically, cohorts of 28 students are selected from 100-125 applicants.
The Department of Dental Hygiene cannot address transfer credit inquiries prior to University acceptance and orientation attendance. Transfer evaluations are completed by the Registrar's Office on a course-by-course basis for each student. Transfer articulations are available at http://www.clayton.edu/registrar/transferequivalencies. This articulation should be used as a guide and does not guarantee that your courses will transfer over to Clayton State University. Potential transfer students can also register to attend a Majors Monday event at http://www.clayton.edu/admissions/events where they will receive a preliminary transcript evaluation and can meet with admission representatives and academic advisors.
Step 1—Apply to Clayton State University for undergraduate admission at http://admissions.clayton.edu/ as a transfer student and declare a Health Sciences major; cumulative GPA of 2.80 or above determines eligibility for pre-dental hygiene. Note that transient and post-baccalaureate non-degree seeking University applicants are not eligible for separate dental hygiene application.
Step 2—Attend University orientation to meet advisor, review transfer credit, register in program prerequisites. Plan to take the nursing program prerequisite of HSCI2111-Introduction to the Health Care Environment during the first semester of enrollment at Clayton State PRIOR to dental hygiene program admission.
Step 3—Submit separate program application including entrance exam and interview for qualified applicants.
