Preveterinary medicine is a non-degree granting designation available to freshmen and sophomores. It gives students access to the information, people, and resources to prepare them for the veterinary school application.
Students must choose a degree-granting major after completing 56 credit hours, including transfer credits. Once a student declares a major, they must meet with their major advisor while remaining in contact with prevet advisors.
Prevet advisors will provide continued guidance in preparing for a competitive application to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program.
Students with the designation often complete undergraduate degrees in Animal Science, Integrative Biology or other life sciences prior to going on to veterinary school.
