The Pre-Dentistry program provides guidance on courses, experiential activities, and competencies for students that are preparing to be competitive applicants to Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) after completing their Bachelor's degree at James Madison University. The Pre-Dentistry program is a minor that students complete as part of their baccalaureate degree.

Incoming first year and  transfer students can declare pre-dentistry without verification from PPH Advising. After initial enrollment, current students can request to declare the pre-dentistry minor through My Madison but will need approval for the request to be granted. If the student has completed fewer than 13  hours of biology, chemistry, physics or math (BCPM) credits, the request will be granted after verification of course work. If the student has completed 13 hours or more BCPM credits, the request will be granted if the cumulative GPA is 3.00 or greater and the BCPM GPA is 2.90 or greater.
