Step 1: Before applying

Before applying to the dental hygiene program, be sure you’re an accepted LSC student and have completed all pre-program courses and requirements.

Become an LSC student

  • Apply to LSC

    Before you apply to the dental hygiene program you must apply and become an LSC student.

  • Declare your major

    When you apply to become an LSC student, choose dental hygiene as your major. If you change your major after you apply to LSC, make sure to meet with an advisor.

  • Have you been an LSC student before?

    If you’ve taken classes for credit at LSC in the last 2 years, don’t reapply. If it’s been 2 years or more since you took a class, you need to apply to become an LSC student again.

Complete pre-program courses and requirements

Complete all “pre-program” requirements / courses specified in your program guide.

Review pre‑program requirements in the program guide including:

  • English/reading
  • Math
  • Pre-program courses
  • GPA requirements

Job shadowing
We recommend you complete your job shadowing before you apply to the dental hygiene program. You’ll get to see and experience the dental hygiene profession up close and have a better idea of what to expect from the dental hygiene program when you apply. Start shadowing now!
