Students complete the course work between July and mid-June. An overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 or better is required before a degree can be awarded. Students who gain admission to a dental school for the subsequent fall term may elect to complete a literature review over the summer period and receive their degree in August or December. This task may also be deferred until the following summer, which would delay the awarding of the degree until the following year.
