- Applicants must be within two semesters of completing all pre-veterinary course requirements (by June 1st following application) and must have a grade point average in the required courses of at least 2.80.
- A grade lower than "C" in a required course is unacceptable and must be repeated. A C- is considered below a C.
- If the applicant retakes a course, the hours and grade points of the repeated course will be averaged to those of the original course in calculating the required course GPA.
- All courses taken for the purpose of substitution must be completed by the end the fall term in which application is made.
- Math and science based courses must have been completed within eight years of the fall semester in which application is made. To remove old coursework from your cumulative GPA, submit in writing a formal request to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Upper level science courses must be taken at a four-year institution to be valid. This includes Animal Nutrition, Biochemistry, Genetics, and Organic Chemistry.
- An applicant is required to take the general Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Test results must be received by VMCAS by October 13. Scores are acceptable only if the tests were taken within four academic years prior to application. It takes several weeks for VMCAS to receive score reports, therefore it is recommended to take the test no later than September 15.
- To register for the GRE online, visit the GRE website. Applicants must use Institution code 6558 for score reports (do not use the code for Oklahoma State University).
- NOTICE TO ALL DVM APPLICANTS: The OSU-CVHS will not, under any circumstance, process an application if it has not been verified through VMCAS. We adhere to all VMCAS deadlines.
