Admission to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine requires a rigorous program of undergraduate study in the basic sciences. Students are encouraged to plan their program of undergraduate study carefully so that they will receive a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture whether or not they are later admitted to the College of Veterinary Medicine. The College of Veterinary Medicine has a limited enrollment policy. Selection of the best qualified applicants for admission is the responsibility of a faculty committee within the College. The committee considers applicants who have met the minimum academic requirements including at least three years of study, or its equivalent, at an accredited college. Students normally apply for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine during their third year of study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. Students not admitted to Veterinary Medicine may continue their study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences for a fourth year to complete the requirements for the B.S.A. degree in any major they choose. Several degree programs within the College are compatible with the Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. The program of study will meet the dual objectives of completing the requirements for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine and the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Students should contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, College of Veterinary Medicine, for a more detailed description of requirements for admission to that college.
