All application materials (application view pdf version, 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 you need to mail any materials, please send them to:

Department of Dental Hygiene, Mail Stop 238
800 West University Parkway
Orem, UT 84058


It is the applicant’s responsibility to make sure their application file is complete and is been received before the deadline. You 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 you are getting your prerequisites done at another University or College, you 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, you will be required to post a $300 deposit to hold your spot in the program. Once you’re registered for courses, your deposit will go towards your student fees the first semester.


Filling out the below form will launch a payment portal for you to pay the $50 application fee. You will then be redirected after payment is completed to another form where you will launch a docusign process. 


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