Dental Hygiene Clinic
Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene initial licensure track should prepare for program start-up costs and anticipate additional semester and/or annual expenses during program enrollment. Costs are approximate and subject to change:
All dental and nursing students are expected to be free from any influence of drugs and/or alcohol while in class and during all clinical/lab experiences. All dental and nursing students must undergo drug screening prior to matriculation into the clinical portion of their majors.
Additionally, the College of Health reserves the right to require any and all students accepted into its clinical programs to submit to random drug screening upon request and at any time a student is suspected of being under the influence. Failure to comply will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
If a student is suspected of being under the influence, they will be removed from class and/or lab/clinical experiences and asked to submit to drug testing within 24 hours using the procedure described below. Admission of drug/alcohol use will result in immediate dismissal from the program and referral to University Student Affairs for possible additional disciplinary action.
If the student denies any drug or alcohol use, they must undergo drug screening, at their expense using the following protocol. If the drug screen comes back negative, the student is allowed to return to class and/or clinical experiences. If the drug screen comes back positive, the results will be reviewed by the appropriate university administrator and may result in dismissal from the program.
Students have the right to appeal any disciplinary action resulting from the drug/alcohol screen.
