Criminal Background Checks
ADEA PASS provides its participating advanced dental education
programs the option to conduct a criminal background check on
candidates to whom they have offered admission. This service is
voluntary and not all programs utilize it. You should be aware,
however, that some programs that you decide to apply to may request
a background check upon acceptance.
If you wish to complete the background check before receiving an
offer of admission from the advanced dental education programs you
apply to, you may initiate the process in the "My Profile" section
of your ADEA PASS application by selecting "Request a Background
Check" once your application has been submitted to ADEA PASS. This
will allow you to see information that will appear on the
background check done after offer of admission. Please note that if
you opt to complete the background check prior to offer of
admission, you will be required to pay for a second check after
offer of admission.
