Becoming a Student
Becoming a student in the Dental Assisting Program at CSM requires the following steps.
Apply to the College to be admitted as a student. If you have been been a student at CSM, Canada, or Skyline College in the past two semesters you are already an active student. If you have not been a student in last two semesters, you will need to reapply for admission. Please apply at collegeofsanmateo.edu/apply.
Once admitted you will need to take the College of San Mateo's Math and English or ESL Placement Tests. On the Assessment Center's website, you can schedule your placement tests.
Attend the College Orientation and Course Selection Workshop.
Apply to the Dental Assisting Program. Applications will be available online beginning February 22, 2013. The application deadline is Friday, March 29, 2013. Applications received after March 29, will be placed on a waitlist. Students will be chosen by lottery to receive a spot in the program if there are more applications than spots available.
