Admissions Guide

While the selection process is rigorous, UTCVM looks for well-rounded individuals who are more than just a GPA. Animal experiences, leadership in clubs and organizations, volunteer positions, research projects, community involvement, and other talents may provide the right combination of skills that make a successful veterinary student and veterinarian. Additional information can be found in our Admissions Guide.

We have put together information that students in high school and middle school may find useful if they are interested in veterinary medicine.
