    Dental

    Offers of Admission

    Dental School Offers  dental schools begin extending offers of acceptance on December 1, 2019.

    After May 1, 2020 no dental school in Texas may offer a position to an applicant already accepted by another dental school in Texas. This is the result of an agreement among the two UT System Dental Schools and Texas A&M College of Dentistry. Only extraordinary circumstances warrant an exception to this policy. If this should occur, the Dean/Director of Admissions at the school wishing to extend an offer must receive approval from the Dean/Director of Admissions at the school where the applicant is holding a position BEFORE the offer is extended. 

    Acceptance Information

    The dental schools begin extending offers of acceptance on December 1. Offers of acceptance will continue to be made until classes are filled. See Deadlines and Important Dates for more information.

    Offers to the combined DDS/PhD programs also begin on December 1.

    Applicants who receive offers of acceptance from more than one dental school must choose the one school that he/she prefers and withdraw from the other school(s) in accordance with the terms of the acceptance (generally this should be within a two week period).

    Multiple Acceptances 

    With the exception of offers received during the pre-match period, only the most unusual of circumstances justify an applicant’s holding a place in the entering class of more than one US school for more than two weeks since this may adversely affect other applicants. The schools; therefore, reserve the right to withdraw offers of acceptance to individuals who hold places for longer periods without specific authorization from the schools involved. Applicants may withdraw active applications from any school any time during the application period. 
    Applicants may hold multiple offers of acceptance from the TMDSAS medical schools as well as other non-TMDSAS schools such as Baylor College of Medicine. By April 30 of the matriculation year, each applicant who has received an offer of acceptance from more than one school should choose the specific school at which the applicant prefers to enroll and withdraw his or her application from all other schools from which acceptance offers have been received. 

    After 5:00 pm CT on May 15, no medical school in Texas may offer a position to an applicant already accepted by another medical school in Texas. This is the result of an agreement between the four UT System Medical schools, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas A&M University College of Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine, and University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth College of Osteopathic Medicine.

    Policies Regarding Acceptance 

    The Professional School Committee on Admissions 

    Each professional school has an Admissions Committee which is responsible for the evaluation of students admitted to its program. The committee members, appointed from the faculty, review all applications. They then recommend for acceptance those applicants who best meet the established admissions criteria. All actions on admission to a professional program are the prerogative of the Admissions Committee of each professional school. Questions concerning admission decisions should be directed to the medical school concerned. 

    Transcripts Following Acceptance 

    TMDSAS maintains the records of accepted applicants. Therefore, official transcripts for coursework taken subsequent to acceptance up to matriculation must be sent to TMDSAS at the end of each semester that coursework is taken. Applicants who are accepted and plan to enroll in medical school will also be required to submit a complete set of transcripts to the school at which they plan to enroll. These transcripts must include all courses taken prior to enrollment. TMDSAS does not reproduce transcripts for the schools.
