This agreement establishes an Early Acceptance Program to which Slippery Rock University undergraduate students are enrolled jointly by Slippery Rock University and by LECOM. The Early Acceptance Program is designed to facilitate the admission of Slippery Rock University students into LECOM’s Doctor of Dental Medicine program. LECOM will interview the student prior to their enrollment at Slippery Rock University or within the first two years of study at Slippery Rock University. Students interviewing successfully will be offered a provisional acceptance to LECOM’s Doctor of Dental Medicine program. Upon meeting the criteria for final acceptance, they will matriculate at the LECOM Bradenton, FL campus.

Because this is a demanding professional program, the requirements listed for acceptance have been established to demonstrate that the student is capable of handling the rigorous course load.

The Early Acceptance Program is comprised of two phases. Phase 1 consists of four years of undergraduate education at Slippery Rock University. Phase 2 consists of four years of dental school education at LECOM and its associated clinical training sites.

Careers in these areas may require professional licensure and certification.  Professional licensure and/or certification vary by state and you are urged to check with your state licensing board.
