Dental Laboratory Technician Admissions Requirements

Ameritech College of Healthcare is home Utah’s only accredited Dental Laboratory Technician (DLT) program. If you’re ready to start a distinctive career as a dental laboratory technician, you’ve come to the right place! The college admissions process can be a stressful experience, but our Admissions Advisors are here to walk you through the process. Here are some of our admissions requirements:

Acceptance into the DLT program will be on a first-come, first-enrolled basis for those who have completed the admissions requirements.

  1. Interview with one of our Admissions Advisors prior to enrollment. During the interview, the goals, objectives, motivations, and commitment level of the applicant will be discussed. Additionally, the program details including schedule, tuition, and other associated costs will be reviewed.

  2. Complete and receive a passing score on a dexterity and aptitude exam.

    a. A prospective student who does not pass the dexterity and aptitude exam may retake the exam after 30 days; however, the test may only be taken twice per semester.
    b. This exam may be taken at the Draper campus at no cost to the applicant.
    c. Passing exam scores are valid for one year from the date administered.
    d. Any exceptions must receive the written approval of the Program Director.

  3. Provide evidence of a High School Diploma, GED equivalent or signed attestation of High School Graduation/GED completion for admittance. If it is discovered that an attestation was falsely signed, the student may be immediately terminated from Ameritech College of Healthcare or denied admissions, if discovery is made prior to the program start. Students may also submit evidence of a college degree from a postsecondary institution whose accreditation is recognized by the United States Department of Education. At this time, we do not accept students under “Ability to Benefit” arrangements.

  4. Pay the required registration fee, which is valid for one year from the date of receipt.

  5. Complete an Enrollment Packet, which includes the Ameritech College of Healtchare Enrollment Agreement.

  6. Meet with a member of the Financial Aid Department to make satisfactory financial arrangements to cover the cost of education prior to starting classes. Acceptable financial arrangements include but are not necessarily limited to:

    a. Title IV funds
    b. Alternative Funding Loans
    c. Cash Payment
    d. Government Funding (WIA, DWS, Voc Rehab, etc.)

  7. Attend the required DLT program orientation.
