Deadlines for AS

Application Deadlines

We recommend early submission of the CAAPID application. CAAPID becomes available on the ADEA website in April for applications for admission in the following calendar year. Applications submitted early in the cycle allow Admissions ample time to review an applicant’s qualifications. Please note that due to processing requirements, CAAPID will release your application to the dental schools a few weeks after your materials are received.

January 1 is the CAAPID application submission deadline for Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine.

Electronic application record

Application records are maintained electronically. The electronic CAAPID application includes your academic history (scanned ECE course-by-course transcript evaluation), and letters of recommendation (also called letters of evaluation, or references). The CAAPID application includes fields for self-reported NBDE Part I results and TOEFL scores.

Submission of the supplementary Boston University application and fee is online. If an applicant wishes to submit an updated resume or CV, or a supplementary letter of evaluation, we request that the item be scanned and emailed to Applicants do not need to send TOEFL scores or NBDE Part I results to the Admissions office when applying.

If an applicant is invited to interview, we request that he or she arrange for the testing agencies to mail official NBDE I and TOEFL results to Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine’s Advanced Standing DMD Admissions at that time. Any materials submitted become part of the applicant’s record and will not be returned.


Individuals who applied during a prior admissions cycle and who wish to reapply must submit a new CAAPID application for the current cycle. All necessary documents must be resubmitted through CAAPID. No documents are kept from previous cycles.
