Upstate Program Information



The USC Upstate Pre-Dental program is an advisement track within the biology degree program. Although many dental schools do not require a bachelor’s degree, few students enter dental school without completing one. Students already having a degree and aiming for dental school should concentrate on taking the courses that will best prepare them for taking the Dental Admission Test (DAT).
