All application materials (application, transcripts, HSRT scores, Clinical Observation Verification, letters of reference, and application fee) must be postmarked or hand-delivered directly to the Dental Hygiene department by 4 pm on February 1. Only completed applications will be considered for admission. To be complete, all transcripts and test scores must be official and in sealed envelopes. If possible, please hand-deliver all materials directly to the Dental Hygiene advisor located in HP 101b. If materials need to be mailed, please send them to:

UVU Dental Hygiene Dept., Mail Stop 238
Attn: Kristie Dockstader
800 West University Parkway
Orem, UT 84058


It is the applicant’s responsibility to make sure their application file is complete and has been received before the deadline. Applicants may call the academic advisor to check if certain application materials have been received. Advanced planning and submission of materials early in the application period is strongly encouraged. Deadlines will not be extended for individual applicants. If prerequisites are done at another University or College, applicants do not have to apply to UVU first, in order to apply to our program.

Applicants are reviewed by number only, not by name, for computation of points. The top 30 candidates will then complete an interview/social component—tentatively scheduled for the second week in February—with a committee made up of Dental Hygiene faculty and staff. After the interview component, the top 20 applicants will be admitted into the program. Upon acceptance into the program, applicants will be required to post a $300 deposit to hold their spot in the program. Once registered for courses, their deposit will be applied toward student fees the first semester.


Filling out the form below will launch a payment portal for you to pay the $50 application fee. After payment is complete it will redirect to another form to complete the application process. 


*It is important to not close your browser between the application payment and the docusign process. Also, the system will time out due to inactivity. Complete the application at the time of payment.
