Preprofessional Programs

NMSU offers a number of programs designed for transfer to professional schools through its undergraduate colleges. The program that is administered by the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences is Preveterinary Medicine.  Several majors are aligned for students to apply for the New Mexico State University Osteopathic Medicine Pathway Program to Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Veterinary Medicine (Preprofessional Training Only, Non-Degree)

The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degree is a professional degree that is not offered by any college or university in New Mexico; however, you may complete the preparatory program required for admittance to the professional colleges of veterinary medicine at New Mexico State University.

The D.V.M. degree normally requires four years of training in a professional college subsequent to completion of a preveterinary program that requires at least three years of college-level instruction. In most instances a baccalaureate degree is a distinct advantage to the applicant.

Curriculum requirements are determined by the particular school or college of veterinary medicine. The Department of Animal and Range Sciences maintains current requirements for Colorado State University, Washington State, Oregon State and Texas A&M. You should check with an advisor for specific course requirements. As a student from New Mexico, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the program of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). See the section on WICHE in the General Information chapter under Resources for Students for more information.
