Dentistry

The courses required for admission to dental school are listed below, along with their Binghamton University equivalents. With the exception of the English and Physics, the remaining coursework is covered on the DAT. Therefore, you need to complete the Biology and both Chemistries prior to taking the DAT. There are several ways in which you can create a course schedule in order to complete these course requirements in a timely manner. These, as well as other information, are discussed in the 2014-15 Freshman Sophomore Pre-Health Handbook (pdf).


Online courses:
Some ​professional​ schools do not accept online science courses, especially those with online labs. It is the student's responsibility to check the requirements for each school to which they are applying.
