For personal reasons a student may want to vary the above program slightly and should consult with the adviser to see that the minimum requirements for admission to the Dental Hygienist Program are attained. A student who wishes to return to Ouachita to obtain a Bachelor’s degree may be able to transfer some of the credits in the Dental Hygienist Program toward this degree and should have the transcript from the University of Arkansas examined by the Registrar at Ouachita.
