The Early Admission Program offers an opportunity for students with superior academic performance to commit to their veterinary medical career goals early in the educational process. Students accepted to the program agree to complete their bachelor’s degree with the pre-veterinary required courses and maintain a GPA of 3.5 each semester of their undergraduate education.


Applicants must be enrolled as full-time students in a four-year comprehensive university in the state of Oklahoma, regardless of residency status. Eligible applicants must have achieved an ACT score of at least 28 (SAT 1300 without writing portion).

Applicants must be able to demonstrate strong interest in veterinary medicine, effective leadership and communication skills, emotional maturity, and other non-technical skills which reflect knowledge and aptitude necessary for successful practice of veterinary medicine. Qualified applicants will participate in interviews as part of the selection process.


Applicants apply as entering college freshmen (students who graduated high school in May).

Applications must be typed or printed legibly. Please return in one envelope the completed application, ACT/SAT scores, high school transcript, official college transcript showing any concurrent courses, and the $50 application fee (money order or check referencing "Early Admission" in the memo line and made out to OSU-CVHS) to the address listed below. Two letters of reference are also required. Letters of reference must be sent directly from the evaluator either by mail to the same address or emailed directly to
