You can create and submit your Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS) account in early June. Once submitted, AADSAS will distribute your application to the schools you have designated. Dates change each year, so check their website for details.
Official transcripts from each institution where you have taken courses must be submitted to AADSAS. After you create an account in AADSAS, print one transcript matching form for each institution where you have taken a course. Send this form to the registrar office at the specific institution/s. The institution will send the transcripts directly to AADSAS. For the University of Miami Office of the Registrar web site, click here.
Once we have all the forms in your file (completed AADSAS application with submission date, cover or committee letter request form and associated documents, and all of your letters of evaluation), you will be placed in queue.
You will be notified when you have been placed in the queue for submission and then again when your cover or committee letter packet has been submitted.
Answers to most questions are available online, click here to visit AADSAS web site or call 617-612-2045.
Note on Texas Dental Schools: If you are applying to a dental school in Texas, you must apply through the Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS), not AADSAS. Click here for TMDSAS. You will need to complete the [Colleges Attended] section of the TMDSAS application. Then, in the [Letters of Evaluation] section, indicate that a packet is being submitted and enter University of Miami. You must answer “Yes” to the following question in the [Colleges Attended Questions] section: “Would you like to release your information to the health professions advisor at any school(s)?” and indicate the school which will be uploading your committee packet. Then provide the Pre-Health Office with a copy of your submitted TMDSAS application (a pdf document emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org will suffice) and request that the Office submit your committee or cover letter packet to the TMDSAS portal. The Pre-Health Office will place you in queue and then upload your cover or committee letter packet to the TMDSAS Evaluator Portal.
