Test Scores

You can submit your application before TMDSAS has received your test scores. Your scores will be added to your application as they are received and they will not cause a delay to your application processing time.


Exam Requirements By School Type


Dental Schools

Dental Admission Test (DAT)

The Dental Admission Test (DAT) is required for admission to dental school.

It is recommended that you take the DAT in the spring or summer prior to applying, but no later than December 1 of the application cycle. Offers of admission go out mid December. Waiting to take the DAT until that date will delay any consideration for admission until after your test scores are released. 

Medical Schools

Medical College Admission Test (MCAT)

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is required for admission to medical and podiatry school.

We strongly encourage taking the MCAT by May prior to applying so that your application will be completed and in the applicant pool for the start of the interview season in August. Applicants who wait to take the examination for the first time in July, August or September may find action on their application delayed until late in the admission season.  


Veterinary Schools

Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

PLEASE NOTE: TMDSAS veterinary schools do not require the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) for consideration for admission.
