In September 2018, NMS sends e-mails to US and Canadian Dental schools to confirm their contact information for receiving reports on their students' participation in the Match. If you do not receive an e-mail from NMS by the end of September, please contact NMS.

   List of Your Students

Schools that have confirmed their contact information with NMS will have access to an online report of the students from their school who have registered to participate in the Match. It is your responsibility to verify the eligibility of your students in the Match.
