Open to every incoming dental student, the Pre-Matriculation Program is designed as a buffer before full-time dental school for students who earned a place in the program but are new to the Twin Cities or perhaps come from a smaller institution. Students are selected by invitation only.
The four-week program features mini-sessions that give students a feel for what their courses will be like and a general preview of college life in the Twin Cities.

Target group: Incoming first-year dental students
