Dental Applicants: 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 on December 1 (December 15 for EY2021 due to impacts caused by COVID-19); waiting to take the DAT until that date will delay any consideration for admission until after your test scores are released.
