ADEA Centralized Application Service (CAS) Refund Policy

Refunds are not typically granted because designated dental schools/programs have access to information as soon as an application is submitted. As an applicant, it’s your responsibility to complete your application correctly, monitor the status of your application, ensure all required materials are received and posted to the application, respond to all notifications in a timely manner and adhere to the deadline requirements posted by each dental school/program to which you have applied. 

In special circumstances, refund requests will be reviewed. Applicants must submit a brief, written request within 30 calendar days of the end of the application cycle for consideration. ADEA reserves the right to grant or deny requests at its own discretion. Any refund granted will be returned to the applicant in the method it was paid.

Special Consideration for ADEA AADSAS® (ADEA Associated American Dental Schools Application Service) applicants: 
Reapplicants accepted after June 1 to the previous cycle can request a refund. Requests must be made within two weeks of the acceptance, which will be verified by ADEA AADSAS staff.

Special Consideration for ADEA PASS® (ADEA Postdoctoral Application Support Service) applicants: 
If one of your designated programs has closed for the cycle, please email for next steps.

Requests shall be sent to:
