Transfer Program

Pre-Dentistry (AS.PDEN)



The following courses are recommended for Pre-Dentistry students. These courses meet the pre-dental transfer requirements for the University of Illinois Dental School and other dental schools in Illinois. Upon completion of this course sequence, pre-dental students will receive an associate in science degree.

Most professional schools require a third year of pre-dentistry leading toward a baccalaureate degree. Additional courses required during the third year include one full year of foreign language, one full year of college physics, plus additional mathematics, history and literature.

This is a sample list of major requirements. Consult a counselor or academic advisor before registering. Four-year college requirements vary from college to college. Pre-dentistry students may also have to consider summer school. For further information, contact a pre-dentistry advisor.


Specific graduation requirements are identified through degree audit. Additional developmental courses in math, reading and English may be required based on placement scores. Only courses with a course number of 100 or higher meet graduation requirements for AA/AS/AES degrees.
