About the Bulletin

The 2022-2023 Dentistry Bulletin is applicable to DMD students who enroll at the University beginning Summer 2022 through Spring 2023.

The Dentistry Bulletin is the compilation of the rules, requirements and policies governing the DMD professional dental education at the University of Louisville. While every effort has been made to make the bulletin accurate as of the date of publication, the University of Louisville reserves the right to change programs of study, academic policies, academic requirements, fees, course information, procedures for the confirmation of degrees, or the announced academic calendar and related deadlines without prior notice.  This publication is not a contract between the University of Louisville and any member of the student body, faculty, or general public.

The University of Louisville is an equal-opportunity institution and does not discriminate against persons because of race, religion, sex, age, handicap, color, citizenship or national origin.  If responses from the unit staff are unsatisfactory, inquiries or complaints about discrimination including sexual harassment or handicap access can be made to Employee Relations and Compliance by calling (502) 852–6538.

The Redbook is the official statement of the organizational structure, the rules of governance and procedures, and university-wide policies of the University of Louisville. If there is any conflict between the policies, procedures or other statements contained within this catalog, The Redbook shall govern. 

A copy of The Redbook is available electronically.
