You do not have to complete your undergraduate work in a specific major or in a pre-veterinary program in order to be considered for admission to Cummings School. Applicants who have explored various fields such as humanities, fine or performing arts, social sciences, engineering, zoology, biology, agriculture or other areas are encouraged to apply. Regardless of major, these undergraduate prerequisite courses must be fulfilled before enrollment.
Applicants must have attended a regionally accredited college or university. Applicants are encouraged to choose schools and courses that will best prepare them for a rigorous veterinary medical curriculum. The strength and quality of an applicant's academic background will be considered when evaluating application for admission.
We accept AP credit to fulfill prerequisites courses as long as that credit appears on your undergraduate transcript. Contact the admissions office if you wish to discuss further.
If you've taken any recent coursework to fulfill our prerequisites, you may request a letter from one of those professors. Contact the admissions office if you wish to discuss further.
In general, three letters of evaluation are sufficient. In special circumstances, an applicant may want to submit more than three letters. Submit only additional letters which you feel will add another dimension to your candidacy.
