Requirements for Associate in Science (AS) Degree: 85 credits

The following minimum courses (19 credits) are required of students entering the Dental Hygiene program: ENG 100(3); MATH 100, 103, or
115(3); MICR 130(3) and MICR 140(2); PHYL 141(3), PHYL 141L(1), PHYL 142(3), and PHYL 142L(1) all with grade C or better. General Education AS credits (see below) may be completed early to reduce course-load and be more competitive in the selection process. Science lecture courses required for admission have a 10-year time limit, which must be completed within the last 10 years prior to application deadline. A “lab” course (e.g., PHYL 141L/142L) does not have a time limit, and may be repeated online in the UH system as a 3-credit lecture-only course.
