Dental Selectives by Quarter

Spring Quarter 2023 Selectives

Students in the DDS1, DDS2, and IDS1 classes are required to take two selectives during the spring quarter.  A student may take as many courses as they wish as long as there are no conflicts.  Full credit will be available for those who attend all meetings of a selective course. The dental school does not have a "no credit" grading option.  All selective courses are offered on a credit/"F" basis only. Selective courses become part of your dental school transcript and are posted to the transcript in the quarter in which the course(s) are completed. If you are absent for any selective for which you are registered you may receive a grade of Incomplete (INC).

As mandated by Curriculum Committee, the distribution of courses are as follows: (DDS) at least 2 in year 1 and year 2, and at least 1 in year 3; (IDS) at least 2 in year 1 and at least 1 in year 2. Please note, selective graduation requirements, to be completed by the winter quarter of your graduation year, are as follows: 5 for DDS and 3 for IDS students.  

Enrollment for selectives is on a first-come, first-served basis. The priority add/drop period will be held April 3-7, 2023.  The last day to add or drop a course is Monday, June 12, 2023. Please follow the registration procedures below for directions on how to add or drop courses through Inside Pacific.
