Students interested in the pre-veterinary medicine advising track must obtain a bachelor’s degree and complete the necessary prerequisites in order to apply for veterinary school. Those interested in veterinary school should consult with a pre-professional health adviser to learn about requirements that are specific to the schools of veterinary medicine to which they hope to apply.
Declaration of the pre-veterinary medicine advising track through the Office of Pre-Professional Health Advising does not constitute or guarantee admission to any veterinary school. Students must apply separately to a veterinary medicine program of their choice at the appropriate time.
If interested in preparing for veterinary school, students must declare an academic major and should declare and maintain their pre-veterinary advising track. Students do not earn a pre-veterinary medicine degree. Those unsure of their academic majors initially should clarify their academic interests through regular conversations with their advisers. Pre-veterinary medicine students are encouraged to major in fields of greatest interest to them. To declare a pre-veterinary medicine advising track, , please see the pre-professional health advising blog.
Veterinary schools across the U.S. have different prerequisites for admission into their program. Students should discuss career plans with their pre-professional health adviser for additional guidance.
