Biology/Pre-Dentistry Concentration

General Information

The Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-Dentistry Concentration is designed to prepare students for admission into professional programs in dentistry. The requirements of the Pre-Dentistry program are based on the general requirements of the Bachelor of Science in Biology, specifically adjusted for pre-dentistry students. Coursework in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, genetics, and physics prepares students for the Dental Admission Test (DAT) and for future success in the field.

Admission Requirements

First-year student admission is open to high school graduates (or equivalent) who demonstrate academic preparedness, maturity and seriousness of purpose with educational backgrounds appropriate to their chosen program of study. High school courses and grade point average, ACT composite score, and ACT reading and mathematics sub test scores will be considered in the admission and placement process. Transfer students must have at least 12 credits at the time of application with a minimum 2.0 overall GPA including an English and a mathematics course or they must provide their high school records and ACT scores for admission review.

Get Accepted to Dental School

A letter of acceptance from a dental school doesn't come easily. It requires effort, time and careful preparation. Professors and advisors with knowledge and expertise in this field are essential, and students get a helping hand into dental school from the professionals at Ferris.

In fact, professional training in the health fields has been a specialty at Ferris for more than 100 years. Graduates of the Pre Dentistry program at Ferris benefit from this rich history and take with them important hands-on skills as they pursue a position in dental school. Students must be aware that admission to dental schools is highly selective and the student must achieve a very high grade average and DAT score to be competitive. FSU graduates with this type of academic accomplishment experience a high rate of acceptance into dental schools.
