Application Process
To initiate the application process, prospective students must apply directly to ADEA AADSAS at:

655 K Street NW
Suite 800
Washington, D.C.  20001
Phone: 202/289-7201;
Fax: 202/289-7204

  1. Students may apply online. Students may access an AADSAS application in mid-May of the academic year preceding the year in which they plan to matriculate.
  2. After receiving an applicant's processed information from AADSAS, the Office of Admissions creates the applicant file. Concurrently, the office sends a supplemental application to all applicants. The Applicant must complete and return the supplemental application as soon as possible; additionally, the Applicant must request two letters of evaluation. All letters of evaluation must be submitted by the evaluators directly to AADSAS or to MWU.

Please note: Status of the application can be tracked on the MWU website. Instructions for accessing accounts are available from the Office of Admissions. Please send notification of any changes in your mailing address and e-mail address. All requests for withdrawal an application must be done in writing; contact the Office of Admissions via e-mail at

Application Deadline
The official Associated American Dental Schools Application Service (AADSAS) application deadline is January 1st; however, to be competitive within the rolling admissions process, prospective students should submit their AADSAS applications as early as possible after June 1 of the year prior to their desired matriculation. Even though the AADSAS deadline is January 1 of the matriculation year, typically 75 percent of all admissions offers will be made by the end of December of the year prior to matriculation. The Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine-Illinois completion deadline (meaning all necessary parts of the application including DAT test scores and MWU-CDMI supplemental application form are received by the Office of Admissions prior to this date) is March 1 of the expected matriculation year.
