Pre-Veterinary Medicine Curriculum
Pre-veterinary students are strongly encouraged to select a major and pursue a degree in an academic specialty of special interest. Most colleges of veterinary medicine in the U.S. require applicants to complete 60-70 credit-hours of undergraduate course work. Applicants who complete a four-year college degree are generally given preference. Many schools require admission test results; the specific test varies from school to school, some require the GRE, others the MCAT. A contract between Nebraska and Iowa State University supports veterinary training for residents of Nebraska. Advisers: Dean’s Office and Dr. William deGraw in the biology department.
