Transcripts must be sent to:
Admissions and Records

Application will not be considered if transcripts are not on file with the Office of Admissions and Records by the application deadline. If you applied to the program in 2016 or 2017, transcripts do not need to be re-sent. However, if a course was taken since that time that pertains to prerequisites for the program then another transcripts showing new course/grade would need to be sent. No transcripts need to be sent if courses were taken at SWC.
***It is the applicants responsibility to confirm with the Office of Admissions and Records that transcripts have been received and attached to their student record. A follow-up with Admissions prior to application deadline is highly recommended.***
Applicants will receive notice via email or U.S mail by mid April. Please do not contact the SWC Dental Hygiene Program for status until after this time.
Applicants who are accepted into the program:
- may NOT defer acceptance but must reapply to the program.
- will be required to attend a mandatory orientation in May
- will be required to meet with a counselor to develop a Student Education Plan (SEP) prior to start of fall classes.
- will be required to submit verification of up-to-date immunizations, vaccines, TB Test and CPR certification prior to start of fall classes.
**Important** Applicants should consider preparing accordingly to ensure immunizations are up to date. More specifically, required Hepatitis B vaccine is done in a three part series approximately two months apart (for each immunization). It is recommended that applicants visit their medical provider early to start the series if you don't already have it completed.
Details of the aforementioned will be provided at the New DH Student Orientation.
