Starting your application

To create an ADEA AADSAS account, click “Create New Account” beneath the login information on the ADEA AADSAS homepage. You will be asked for a username, password, security question, DENTPIN, valid email address and your agreement to a release agreement to activate a new account and be assigned an ADEA AADSAS identification number. For security, do not share your password or account information with anyone.

You may only create one account per application cycle. Creating more than one account will lead to delays and difficulty in handling the receipt of your transcripts and letters of evaluation. If you create multiple accounts, your duplicate accounts will be terminated, along with any documents associated with those accounts.
