The program for dental hygiene is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (and has been granted the accreditation status of “approval without reporting requirements”). The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission on Dental Accreditation may be contacted at (312) 440-4653 or at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611.

Student selection
Admission to the Dental Hygiene Program is competitive.  Qualified applicants will be ranked according to their pre-program GPA; the top-ranking students will be offered admission. In the event of a tie, priority will be given to students who completed their pre-program requirements first. The minimum cumulative GPA of pre-program courses must be 3.0 or better.
