U.S. overseas institutions.

ADEA AADSAS Uwill notU accept student-issued transcripts or transcripts sent by an applicant.

Send transcripts for all colleges and universities you have attended regardless of whether course credit transferred to another college or university and appears on that transcript.



  1. Arrange for the ADEA AADSAS Transcript Processing Department to receive all of your official transcripts by the application deadline date set by your designated dental schools. A dental school may choose not to consider your application for admission if ADEA AADSAS receives your transcripts late; however, ADEA AADSAS will verify coursework and forward your application to all designated dental schools even if your transcripts are received late (prior to February 15).



  1. Obtain a personal copy of each transcript for your records and properly complete the Coursework section of your application.



  1. It is your responsibility to verify and ensure that ADEA AADSAS has received all of your official transcripts. Check the status of your transcripts regularly by logging into your ADEA AADSAS application, select Status on the horizontal tool bar, and select Transcripts.

Transcript Matching Form

The Colleges Attended section of the ADEA AADSAS application allows you to print Transcript Matching Forms. ADEA AADSAS requires that you print a Transcript Matching Form for each transcript being requested and advise your Registrar’s office to attach the Transcript Matching Form to each official transcript. This form contains the school’s name and a bar code that helps ADEA AADSAS properly match your official transcripts to your ADEA AADSAS application. If your current name is different from the name listed on your transcript, you MUST include both your current and former name on the Transcript Matching Form.

Do Unot Uuse forms from previous ADEA AADSAS application cycles. They will not be accepted.

How to Print a Transcript Matching Form


  1. Login to your ADEA AADSAS application, go to the Colleges Attended section of the Application Checklist, select Transcript Matching Form located to the left of each college attended.

  2. Click on the icon in the “Transcript Matching Form” column to download and print the Transcript Matching Form.

  3. Complete the form and submit to each registrar office of every accredited U.S. and Canadian college/university you have attended. Print a copy for each college and university attended. Each institution’s name is pre-printed on the Transcript Matching Form.

  4. Be sure to advise the Registrar office to enclose the Transcript Matching Form with your official sealed transcript and mail it directly to the ADEA AADSAS Transcript Processing Department. ADEA AADSAS has difficulties matching official transcripts that are not accompanied by the Transcript Matching Form, which can result in a delay in processing your application.

All U.S./Canadian and U.S. overseas transcripts should be sent to:

AADSAS Transcript Processing Department

P.O. Box 9110

Watertown, MA 02471

Canadian Transcripts

Follow steps 1 – 5 on the previous page to have your English-speaking Canadian transcripts to be sent to ADEA AADSAS.

Canadian transcripts written in French must be submitted according to the international (foreign) transcript requirements.

Study Abroad

If you participated in a Study Abroad program under the sponsorship of a U.S. or Canadian institution and the international coursework appears on the U.S./Canadian transcript as regular itemized credit, only list the U.S. or Canadian institution on your ADEA AADSAS application. DO NOT list the international (foreign) institution. Arrange for only the U.S. or Canadian transcript to be sent to the ADEA AADSAS Transcript Processing Department. ADEA AADSAS processes study-abroad coursework in the same manner as U.S. and Canadian coursework.



Overseas U.S. Institutions

Overseas U.S. institutions are:





  1. Located outside U.S. borders,

  2. Accredited by a regional institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, and

  3. Use English as the primary language of instruction and documentation.

If you attended an overseas U.S. institution, report it to ADEA AADSAS in the same manner as your U.S. and (English-speaking) Canadian institutions, arrange for an official transcript to be forwarded to ADEA AADSAS. List all coursework on your ADEA AADSAS application. U.S. institutions with campuses overseas are also considered U.S. colleges for which transcripts are required and all coursework must be listed.



International Transcripts

Enter coursework taken at all international colleges/universities in the Coursework section. Be sure to designate that the coursework is “Overseas U.S Institutions” under the Find a College Section. Although ADEA AADSAS permits you to list foreign coursework in your application, ADEA AADSAS does not verify this coursework for authenticity and does not use grades from international transcripts in computing ADEA AADSAS GPA’s.

You are required to submit one transcript from every international college/university you have attended. ADEA AADSAS also encourages international applicants to submit a copy of any evaluation of international coursework that has been completed by an official credential evaluation service.

ADEA AADSAS will forward a photocopy of your international transcript and evaluation to your designated dental school.

All international (foreign) transcripts and transcript evaluations should be sent to:

AADSAS International Transcript Processing Department c/o Liaison International 311 Arsenal Street, Suite 15

Watertown, MA 02472

How to Identify Coursework

Note: Re-Applicants should refer to the FAQs for “Re-Applicants” before submitting new transcripts.

Report ALL coursework completed at U.S., U.S. overseas, and Canadian institutions exactly as it appears on your official transcript(s).

Include information and corresponding grades for every course you have ever taken at any U.S., U.S.

overseas or Canadian institution, regardless of whether credit was earned. All courses that appear on your official transcript (s) and for which a grade and credit were ever assigned will be included in the AADSAS GPA calculations, even if they are not included in the GPA calculations of the transcript-issuing school. This includes, but is not limited to:



  • Courses that have been repeated. Both grades from repeated courses are used in calculating the ADEA AADSAS GPA, even if this is not the policy of your college/university.

  • Courses that you failed, regardless of whether they have been repeated

  • Courses you took in high school for college credit that appear on a college transcript

  • Courses taken at American colleges overseas

  • Advanced placement credit that appears on your transcript, even if you received credit only and no grade

Use a personal copy of your official transcript(s) to enter ALL of your college coursework attempted and earned (do not attempt to do this from memory). Enter courses chronologically, beginning with the oldest transcript to most recent. List all courses from a single transcript before you enter courses from the next transcript. Enter each course once from the transcript where it was originally taken, even if the credits transferred to another institution.

ADEA AADSAS verifies your self-reported courses against your official transcript(s) and will report any discrepancies to your selected dental institutions. ADEA AADSAS does not enter courses for you. ADEA AADSAS will contact you and return your application for corrections or explanations if it identifies a significant number of course discrepancies or omissions. Failure to properly enter all course information and to make corrections as requested may result in processing delays and may jeopardize your chances for admission.

Distinguishing coursework completed outside of the U.S./Canada



  • Study Abroad: List all Study Abroad courses that appear on a U.S. or Canadian

transcript in English with itemized grades and credit hours in this “Coursework” section. For each Study Abroad course, select the name of the U.S. or English-speaking Canadian institution in which the Study Abroad credit and grades appear. If the U.S. or Canadian transcript does not itemize the grades and/or credits for study abroad, follow policies for international (foreign) coursework below.



  • International (Foreign) Institution: If you attended an international (foreign) institution (non-English speaking) enter the coursework exactly as it appears on your transcript. Courses completed outside of a U.S. institution or U.S. overseas institution will not be verified by the Transcript Processing Department. All foreign transcripts will be photocopied and forwarded to your designated dental schools. All foreign applicants are encouraged to have their transcripts evaluated by an official credential agency.



  • Overseas U.S. Institution: If you attended a U.S. Overseas institution, list all courses attempted and credits earned in this section. AADSAS will consider coursework from an overseas U.S. institution in the same manner as U.S. and Canadian course work written in English.
