Allied Dental Programs - IU Fort Wayne


Required prerequisite courses may be taken at any accredited college or university if they are listed as approved courses by the Dental Technology program at the Indiana University Fort Wayne Division of Allied Dental Education. For a full list of prerequisites courses, see the IUFW Bachelor Degree in Dental Technology Admissions website.

Remedial courses may not be used to fulfill this requirement. All applicants must maintain a minimum cumulative college grade point average of 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and achieve a minimum course grade of 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale) in all prerequisite courses to be considered for admission to the program. Please note that if prerequisite courses are retaken for an improved grade, all course grades will be included in the computed grade point averages.

Courses taken at institutions other than Indiana University must show a grade of C or above to be accepted as transfer credit by Indiana University. All prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the spring semester of the year in which the student wishes to enter the program. Questions about course work that does not meet these time limits should be directed to the IUFW Program of Dental Technology.

All applications and supporting materials are to be submitted by May 15th. Applicants who have previously applied must submit a new application when reapplying. Applications to the IUFW dental technology program may be obtained from the Dental Technology website. Requirements and forms for admission to the IUFW dental technology program are specific to this program only and are not acceptable for admission to other dental technology programs.

Class size is limited, and there are more qualified applicants than can be accepted each year. Applicants are encouraged to consult with the dental technology program director for pre-dental technology counseling. Selections are made on an individual basis, upon appraisal of the applicant’s established record and potential for development.

Potential applicants are advised to review the list of minimum skill standards for admission and retention in the dental technology profession. This document is provided on the website and from the school’s Office of Admissions and Student Affairs. In addition to these standards, it is necessary that students enrolled in the dental technology program enter with basic computer literacy sufficient to allow them to participate in instruction involving computer-based course work, Internet searching, basic word processing, and e-mail applications.
