The official status granted by the commission following a site visit to Penn College is “Approval (without reporting requirements).” The status indicates that the college’s program meets or exceeds all of the commission’s accreditation standards.

Graduation from an accredited program is an eligibility requirement for licensure as a dental hygienist.

Penn College offers an associate degree and a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. The final two years of bachelor’s degree coursework may be taken on campus or online.
