Pre-Dental Hygiene Transfer Compact

Associate in Science General Studies

The Pre-Dental Hygiene Transfer Compact is designed to provide academic opportunities for students who are seeking an Associate of Science or a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. Students may complete pre-requisite and general education courses at Gateway Community College that will transfer to the University of New Haven’s Dental Hygiene program. Gateway students who complete the Associate of Science degree in General Studies and have followed the Dental Hygiene track are eligible to apply for admission to the University of New Haven’s Dental Hygiene program.
After completing the Associate of Science or the Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of New Haven, graduates will be eligible to take both the Dental Hygiene National Board Examination and the Northeast Regional Board Examination in order to apply for the Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) License. The program in Dental Hygiene at the University of New Haven is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association.
