Student Information and Checklist

We hope that you will find the following information about the application process helpful.

  • The deadline for applications is March 31.

  • A Personal Profile is part of the application process. Applicants will receive instruction on how to complete the on-line personal profile in March.  The Personal Profile is due March 31.

  • Official transcript from each post-secondary institution attended (excluding VIU). Deadline: March 31. Photocopies/faxed copies of transcripts are not acceptable.

    If you are enrolled in courses away from VIU for the Spring semester (January – April), please ensure that we receive an official transcript showing spring enrollment. A final official transcript must be submitted upon completion of prerequisite courses.

  • All course requirements must be completed by April 28.

  • Biology and Chemistry courses. For students who completed the Biology and Chemistry admission requirements more than five years before the program admission, the dental hygiene program recommends that students review course material before the start of the program.
  • Admission to the Dental Hygiene Diploma program will be determined by a combination of overall GPA and Personal Profile scores.

If all required documents are submitted and the on-line Personal Profile has been completed, applicants will be notified of the status of their application by late May.
