    Processing

    After you submit your application, TMDSAS will process and transmit your application to the dental schools.

    TMDSAS does not wait on transcripts, letters or test scores to process applications. It is your responsibility to ensure that TMDSAS has received all supplemental materials.

    While You Wait

    While you wait to hear from the dental schools, here are some things you may want to do to prepare.

    Monitor the Status of Your Application

    You are responsible for checking the status of your application throughout the entirety of the application process. To check your status, sign in to your application, click on the [Status] status link from the menu on the right-hand side of the application.

    To see the status of your supporting documents, scroll down towards the bottom of the page until you reach the [Supporting Documents] heading. If a document has been received, the receive date will appear next to the document name.

    Complete Secondary Applications

    Secondary applications should be completed as soon as you submit your TMDSAS application.

    Any questions relating to a secondary application should be directed to the respective school. Any secondary application required documents and/or fees should be sent directly to the school and NOT to TMDSAS.

    View the dental schools that require a secondary.

    Update Your Application

    After submitting your application, you may make updates as needed to certain sections.

    You are able to make changes to the following sections yourself by logging back on to the application: Contact Info, Colleges Attended, College Coursework, Planned Enrollment, My Account and Test Scores.

    To update the information in your Letters of Evaluation section, you must email TMDSAS at info@tmdsas.com - include your full name, TMDSAS ID and the exact change that needs to be made.

    Be sure to update this information whenever necessary. For instance, if you retake the DAT, be sure to add the new test date to the application and send us the new score once it is released.

    Missing Item on Application Status Page?

    It can take 3-5 business days for items to appear on your Application Status page once they have been received by TMDSAS, especially near the deadline.

    Continue to check your status online.

    What is Processing?

    TMDSAS reviews your application for completeness and accuracy. If errors or inconsistencies are found, your application will be placed in the problem section - in which case we will immediately notify you of problems by email.

    TMDSAS will make every attempt to process your application in a timely manner. During our busy season, this process can take up to six weeks.

    For more information on processing refer to the Frequently Asked Questions - Application Processing at TMDSAS page.
