Dr. Pelzer talking to perspective students

Thank you for your interest in the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. Here, future veterinarians discover their role in an exciting and varied profession by way of challenging academics, active and collaborative learning, and a community-supported journey.

COVID-19 Update

Dear prospective student,

We understand that these are uncertain times and you have concerns about how the COVID-19 situation will impact your ability to apply to our veterinary program.

We can assure you of the following:

  • Becoming a veterinarian is a big decision, and we strongly recommend that you have veterinary experiences to determine if this is the career choice for you. As a result, we recommend up to 100 hours of veterinary experience. If you are having difficulty finding experience hours, this will not impact your application.
  • We have no GPA cut-off; each application is reviewed in its entirety.
  • We do not require the GRE.
  • We accept online coursework from accredited programs.
  • We will accept no more than 50 percent of pass/fail coursework.

Going forward, we will be organizing virtual information sessions. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,
VA-MD Vet Med DVM Program Admissions Team
