Application Procedure

In order to be considered for entry into the program, prospective students are required to submit official copies of all transcripts, including high school and all other records of academic work along with the completed APLUS Institute Application for Admission Form.

Applicants who have met the minimum academic requirements will be contacted to schedule an Admission Interview and to write our Pre-Admission Aptitude Test* (if applicable).

Admission Interview

The admission interview is required and is considered an essential part of the admissions process providing potential students the opportunity to articulate their background, knowledge, experiences, and interest in dental hygiene.

Criteria for Selection

Criteria for selection are based on academic credentials and/or non-academic requirements, and only well-qualified applicants who presented the most competitive and complete applications are selected for admission.

Admissions Committee selects candidates primarily on the basis of academic record in high school or college, PAAT scores (if applicable), letter(s) of recommendation, and admission interview results.

Applicant’s motivation to pursue a career in dental hygiene, familiarity with the dental field, extracurricular interests, career goals and leadership potential are also taken in consideration.

Applicants are evaluated using established criteria without regard to national origin, colour, race, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation or gender.

The Admissions Committee issues Offers of Admission to the successful applicants on a rolling basis. Accepted candidates are required to make a deposit of $500 (credited to the first semester tuition payment) within 30 days after Offer of Admission is received.

Since the number of qualified applicants usually exceeds the number of available positions, attaining minimum qualifications does not ensure admission. Applicants not receiving initial acceptances are placed on a waiting list and ranked according to their priority score.


APLUS Institute Dental Hygiene Program is approved under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005. Fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada and registered with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities
