Partnership with Case Western Reserve University
Future dentists can earn direct admittance into dental school at Case Western Reserve University’s School of Dental Medicine, after completing three years of undergraduate work at Hiram College.
The seven-year Hiram B.A. to CWRU D.M.D. Program is a new, accelerated option for high-achieving high school students. On top of Hiram College admission guidelines, applicants to the B.A. to D.M.D. program should carry the following credentials:
- Test scores: ACT – 29; SAT – 1300
- GPA: 3.5 or higher (un-weighted)
- Preferred: Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) course credit (the Office of Admission will consider the availability of such coursework at applicant’s high school)
Pre-dental students will major in either biomedical humanities or biology at Hiram College and must meet academic requirements in order to matriculate into CWRU’s School of Dental Medicine after the third year of undergraduate coursework. After the first year of successful study at CWRU, students will receive a B.A. from Hiram.

Dean of the School of Dental Medicine
We have created a curriculum to prepare you for a lifetime of professional advancement. We want to educate dentists who are inquisitive, and some who feel a responsibility to create new knowledge simply because that is what is best for society. It is all part of the culture of inquiry. It is only by educating students to become practitioners who are well equipped to evaluate manuscripts, evaluate their own work, and selectively answer important questions that we can truly qualify as a learned profession.
