assistance model

Model of Clinical - MAC

The Model of Clinical Care (MAC) has a view to creating a clearly-designed outline of administrative and academic procedure that will assure adequate attention to patients and the development of competencies on the part of students of the Dental School UDLSB

The MAC is thus the frame of reference indicating guidelines, procedures and points of control in the provision of services and the monitoring of students learning.

The fundamental aspect for development in clinic is that of the formation of groups or work teams from mixed-semester groups which provide comprehensive care to patients; these work teams are coordinated academically by a tutor and clinically by professors (Clinic Supervisors), thus ensuring not only that students learn, but also the provision of adequate attention during the procedures, whether complex or simple, that patients require.

Clinics Evaluation Model - MEC

The Clinics Evaluation Model (MEC) is based on the pedagogic principle of theory and practice. Dental clinics are considered an integrating space for what has been learned inside the classroom and its application on patients. Clinic Evaluations is measured through this instruments that were designed for this purpose:

a) A yellow card in which progress of treatment plans is registered.
b) The rubrics card in which evidences for performance are collected.
c) The ongoing evaluations which monitor the completion of standard requirements.
d) Final exam which evaluates the competencies of the corresponding area. It is based on instrument and is divided into two sections: theory and practice.

admission process

The process of student selection begins with the promotion and dissemination of the Dental Program one year before.
The process of selecting dental students begins with a variety of promotional and recruiting efforts since the previous year. Online: admission information is available through the UDLSB website, and the Student Affairs Office of the Dental School.

The admission process of the University is administered by the Department of Orientation and Educational Development (the acronym is "DODE" in Spanish), a centralized educational support Department that serves all schools on campus, including the Dental School.
The admission exam includes six components designed to assess the knowledge and other attributes of the applicants, which are considered necessary for successful academic performance at the university level.

The six components are as follows:
• Socio-academic data form
• Knowleldge test
• Intelligence Test
• Personality Test
• Interview process

The results of the tests and other application forms for candidates seeking to enter the Faculty of Dentistry are sent to the Admissions Committee of UDLSB-DS. This Committee analyzes the results of the tests and is responsible for the evaluation and selection of the applicants. The Committee is formed by the Dean, the Academic Coordinator, Clinical Coordinator and Faculty of the Dental School.
The Admissions Committee UDLSB-DS notifies the acceptance on the University website. Subsequently, students can goa head with their registration process.

The dental education program at UDLSB-DS admits students with advanced positions from other universities or other schools in the UDLSB.
Applicants follow the same admission process and criteria, as any other student who wants to enter the Dental School.

The Dental School has a established process to document the equivalency of prior academic work and to evaluate the transfer applicant's preparation for the UDLSB-DS curriculum.

The objectives of this evaluation process are:
• Ensure that the prior education of the student requesting the transfer and the academic standards of the issuing University are proportional to those of the UDLSB.
• Evaluate whether the transferred student has the ability to function at the same level as the admitted students through the regular admission process for UDLSB-DS.

The Ministry of Public Education of Mexico (in Spanish, Ministry of Public Education, SEP, equivalent to the United States Ministry of Education) stipulates that a student can not move from one university to another without attending for at least two years at the new university.

The Ministry of Public Education receives the student transfer request and performs a review of the student's academic credentials, including transcripts, previously completed courses / curriculum and documentation of academic performance (ie, assessments / grades), analyzes and compares the courses students completed at their current University with the UDLSB-DS curriculum , and also the general educational requirements for UDLSB. The subjects of the student's previous program are analyzed to identify the ones in UDLSB that are equivalent. The Ministry of Public Education issues a report and recommendations based on the results of this review process. Next, the Academic Coordinator of the Dental School, in collaboration with the Student Affairs Office of the UDLSB and the Admissions Committee of the Dental School, analyzes the report and performs an additional review of the student's curriculum, including the evaluation. of the course equivalence by the Educational Credential Evaluator (ECE); evaluate the academic standards of the university where the transfer applicant is enrolled. The decision of acceptance or refusal of admission is made and the applicant is informed.

Accepted transfer students are placed in the corresponding year (1st year, 2nd year, etc.) in the regular program at a level designated by the Academic Coordinator in consultation with the Admissions Committee of UDLSB-DS and Student Affairs.

Transfer students complete exactly the same curriculum as other dental students in that class. The Academic Coordinator creates an accompanying plan (mentoring / academic support) for each transfer student to ensure successful integration into the USLSB-DS.

scholarships and financial aid

The Universidad De La Salle Bajío's Financial Aid Department through its General Scholarship Committee has the responsibility of administrating the Scholarship and Financing Programs.

The Universidad De La Salle Bajío offers the following Scholarships. Each Scholarship has its own purpose and criteria:
• Scholarship of Excellence
• Academic Scholarship
• Family Scholarship
• Loss of parent or tutor Scholarship
• Sports Scholarship
• Cultural Scholarship

Scholarship Procedure:
Students interested in applying for a scholarship can find the information on the University's website, posted in the numerous notice boards located throughout the University, or by contacting the Office of Financial Aid directly at

Once a student submits the application to the Financial Aid Department, the application is sent to the Scholarship Committee for review. Results are posted on the University's website two weeks prior to the first day of classes at the beginning of each semester.

Scholarship Awards range from 10% to 90%. Percentages are applied to tuition fees only, with the exception of the Academic Scholarship; any amount awarded by this scholarship is applied towards registration fees as well. However, registration must be paid in full first, and then once the percentage of scholarship awarded is applied, the amount paid in access is credited to the outstanding monthly tuition fees.

The scholarship continues as long as the student maintains an average grade of 8.0 by the end of each semester and does not fail any subjects. No renewal process is needed, if requirements are met.
The beneficiary of any scholarship is subject to no charges or repayments of any kind.

Financing Program
The Scholarship Committee is also responsible for the Financing Program. Financing awards range from 10% to 60%. The percentage is determined through an analysis of the application and an assessment of the applicant's economic situation. This percentage is applied to tuition fees only. Financing is renewed every semester.

Upon completion of their studies, students begin repayment of the financed percentage according to the tuition cost at the time of payment, and must complete the payment within the same period of time as the financed period. For example, if student received financing for two years, the student will have two years following graduation to repay amount due.

Each semester, the UDLSB's Financial Aid Office will issue a financial statement indicating the amount owed. In addition, students may also access the University's website "Comunidad de Alumnos" to check their financial status.

Students who interrupt their studies, or do not re-enroll must pay the amount owed up to the point of their withdrawal.

There is also financial support available through Government agencies, such as EDUCAFIN, which provides support for education. EDUCAFIN is a collaborative organization between the Federal and State Government to provide support to students who study a major or a technical degree in either private or public institutions in the State of Guanajuato. Students start paying a monthly amount of the loan and after their graduation they have five years to pay their debt. For more information visit their website
