As part of EFSC's commitment to provide a safe and positive college experience for every student, EFSC now requires all currently enrolled students to participate in an important online training program called "Think About It." Visit the course information page to learn more about its content and login to the myEFSC Portal before the December 1 deadline to begin the course.

The information below applies only to accepted students: 

  • Health:
    All accepted students will be required to submit a completed physical exam form with proof of immunizations and titers prior to entrance. (Physical exam forms will be available only to accepted students.) However, a physical exam and physician's statement may be required by the Admission's Committee if there is a question of the applicant's ability to meet established program Performance Standards.

  • Insurance:
    All accepted students will be required to purchase the "professional liability" and "accident" insurance through EFSC. Health insurance is strongly recommended. Information about the health insurance is available through the EFSC Admissions Office and can be purchased at the cashier's office.

  • CPR Certification:
    All accepted students will be required to have a current American Heart Association course "BLS for Health Care Providers" CPR certification prior to start of fall semester (start of clinical portion of the program). This must be renewed every two years.

  • Background check and Drug Screening (Criminal History Information Request):
    This is required of all accepted students. Paperwork will be provided at new student orientation as well access to the vendor. The vendor charges students directly for these services. For more information go to Background Check & Drug Screening.

  • Orientation:
    All students accepted must attend the mandatory orientation. At orientation, you will receive the Dental Assisting Student Handbook, Necessary Forms and have an opportunity to ask questions. 

  • Courses:
    All general education and support courses must have been successfully completed with a grade of "C" or better to satisfy Dental Assisting program requirements for graduation.
