  • Education Requirements

    Applicants must have completed at least 41 hours of course work before submitting an application. Applicants must have 62 semester hours of college or university credits prior to admission into the professional program. All prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.

    Applicants are requested to have the majority of their science prerequisites completed by the semester of application. All prerequisites must be completed by the end of the Spring semester prior to admission into the veterinary school. They are not to be taken in the Summer session prior to entrance into the veterinary school. Failure to complete the prerequisites by the end of the Spring semester can result in disqualification.

    Applicants are reminded that course work taken during the Fall semester at the time of application will not be considered for determining the qualifications for interview, but will be considered in the final selection by the Committee.

    Preprofessional courses may be taken at any regionally accredited institution of higher education in the US.

    Courses must have been completed within the last ten years.  Since science advances and expands so rapidly, required prerequisite science courses are rarely exempted from the ten year rule.
