Acceptance and Orientation

Acceptance into the Program:

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance into the program by October 31st and will have to confirm their acceptance by providing a $12,500.00 non-refundable deposit towards the first year's tuition by date provided by IDDP Coordinator, in the year prior to entering the program. The balance of fees will be due in the following months: Intersession - April; 1st term fees - August; 2nd term fees - January (exact dates to be determined).

Summer Orientation Program:

Students will join the College in May of the year in which they are to begin the IDDP for the orientation program. The purpose of the orientation program is to acquaint students with the various policies, protocols, materials and equipment used in the dental program at the University of Manitoba. As well, this program will have a pre-clinical component intended to ensure that the IDDP students’ clinical treatment skills and knowledge are equivalent to the level of the dental students they will be joining in the 3rd year of Dentistry which begins in early August.

Health Standard:

Along with the notification of acceptance, each applicant offered admission will receive the Faculty of Health Sciences Immunization Status Program package form which must be completed and returned to the Dean’s Office prior to the deadline date given by IDDP Coordinator.

Prospective students should refer to and be familiar with the College’s Infectious Diseases Policy Statement on the College’s website

Any student applicant with an infectious disease should either delay their application to the program or disclose this information upon being accepted into the College of Dentistry. Should a student who has been accepted into the program but has been found to be unable to meet the College’s Infectious Disease policy requirements, every effort will be made to accommodate the student until the guidelines are met. In some cases, it may be necessary to suspend or terminate the student from the program if it is shown that the policy guidelines are unable to be met.
