Students who are admitted to the School of Dentistry prior to completing their degrees in the College of Arts and Sciences and who have satisfied the College’s Foundations, Intensive Writing, Foreign Language, Breadth of Inquiry, and major concentration requirements may apply 32 credit hours earned their first year in dentistry as College electives and, at the end of that year, earn the Bachelor’s degree.
