Now accepting applications for transfer admission to the Class of 2025

DVM Transfer Admission

Transfer students are admitted to the second year of our DVM program when space is available. Compatibility between Cummings School and the current veterinary school’s curriculum is required. Please contact us before you apply to ensure eligibility.

Applications are currently being reviewed on a rolling basis for transfer admission in Fall 2022. The admissions committee will review your application as soon as it is complete. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible, as you may be required to take a course in summer 2022, depending on whether you are missing any coursework taught in the first year of our program.

Applicants are required to submit the following:

  • Application for admission
  • An official transcript from their current veterinary school, as well as official transcripts from all other schools, attended. Please note that applicants must have successfully fulfilled the DVM prerequisites for admission
  • A personal statement explaining the reasons for seeking transfer
  • Letters of evaluation, which should be requested from those who know the applicant well, understand academic and professional demands and have had the opportunity to evaluate the applicant’s personal qualities and potential as a veterinarian and veterinary medical student. Three letters of evaluation, one from each of the following areas:
    • A faculty member at the current veterinary school
    • A pre-veterinary, pre-medical, or pre-health professions committee, or from a dean, advisor, or faculty member
    • A veterinarian or research scientist with whom the applicant has had considerable experience
