The Dental Laboratory Technology Program is a Fall-entry program with limited enrollment.
High school graduates should submit an official high school transcript with the graduation date to the Office of Admissions and Records at San Antonio College, 1300 San Pedro Ave., San Antonio, Texas 78212. Neither the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) nor the American College Test (ACT) is required for admission to the College. However, students who have taken these tests should send scores to the San Antonio College Assessment and Research Center, room 110 of the Fletcher Administration Center.
Persons 18 years of age or older who are not high school graduates are encouraged to discuss admission with one of the counselors by calling (210) 486-0333 or by visiting the Counseling Center in the Moody Learning Center on the San Antonio College campus. This office can also respond to questions regarding testing and course placement.
Persons transferring to the College from other accredited institutions should provide the Admissions and Records Office with an official transcript from all the institutions previously attended.
In addition to meeting the general admission requirements of San Antonio College, students desiring admissions to the Dental Laboratory Technology Program must submit all of the following by August 1 for Fall admission:
- A complete Dental Laboratory Technology Program Application Form to the program office.
