Pre-Veterinary Biomedical Technology

Admission to the pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Biomedical Technology (BSVBT) program is a competitive process.  Students take University Studies and support courses before applying to the veterinary technologist program.  At this time, students are admitted once yearly in the Spring.  The deadline for application is in October 31st every year.  Applications for the program are weighted and ranked according to criteria such as overall GPA, GPA on support courses, a written narrative, and clinical observation hours and mandatory Rabies vaccination. The number of students admitted is dependent upon several factors:  faculty numbers, classroom space, and clinical facility space. Students not selected for the BSVBT program may re-apply in subsequent years or may meet with an advisor to select an alternative major of their choice. Please note this is not a pre-vet degree program intended for students to go on the veterinary school but for a professional licensing program for students who successfully graduate and take their board exams to become Licensed Veterinary Technicians.
