Thank you for your interest in our Dental Hygiene programs. The BS-DH entry level program requires a full-time, on-campus commitment. We also offer a BS-DH online degree completion program for registered dental hygienists who are graduates of associate degree dental hygiene programs.
The Augusta University BS-DH program is accredited by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation. It requires completion of 60 semester hours of core curriculum before entering the program to complete the final two years of DH curriculum. Students must also complete University System of Georgia graduation requirements prior to earning the BS-DH degree.
Personal interviews are required for the admissions process. Applicants who meet the minimum requirements and submit all application documents by the deadline are granted an interview.
Program application deadline is April 1. Classes begin in the Fall (August) semester only. Please visit the Office of Admissions to obtain the most current program information.
Our BS-DH Degree Completion Program is designed for dental hygiene graduates of accredited associate degree programs. The curriculum is offered completely online to accommodate students who are already gainfully employed. Part-time study is permitted. Prior to application, students are strongly encouraged to complete all University System of Georgia graduation and core curriculum requirements. Students must complete the core curriculum (60 hours) and Degree Completion Program (30 hours) before being awarded Professional Credit (30 hours) prior to graduation.
