Testing fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
There are no exceptions. Your credit or debit card will be charged when you submit your application.
The name on your IDs must match exactly with the name on your application or you will be denied admission to test. If you are denied admission, you will need to submit a new application. Your previous fee will be forfeited.
Electronic Notification of DAT Eligibility
One to three business days after you apply you will receive an email notification concerning your eligibility to test and instructions for scheduling an appointment. Please check your Spam folder if you are unable to locate the notification.
You should schedule 60 to 90 days before your desired test date. Please remember, you may schedule your testing appointment with Prometric only upon receipt of your eligibility letter.
Rescheduling Testing Appointments
Reschedule your testing appointment by contacting Prometric. Rescheduling will result in a rescheduling fee that is payable directly to Prometric.
The fee schedule is as follows:
|| 1 to 5 business days prior to the testing appointment
|| 6 to 30 business days prior to the testing appointment
|| 31+ business days prior to the testing appointment
**Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are NOT business days**
Appointments can be rescheduled by calling Prometric at 800.688.5804 or through www.prometric.com. Leaving a message for a local test center is not sufficient; the local test center cannot schedule, reschedule, or cancel your appointment.
Take the Test at a Prometric Test Center
If you have concerns about scheduling issues or testing conditions—or if there is any unresolved problem—make sure to inform the Test Administrator before leaving the test center. Record this information in the appropriate section of the post-test survey. For issues requiring further action, contact the Dental Admission Testing Program within five business days of the testing appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
