Interested in becoming a veterinarian? Our pre-veterinary medicine pages contain useful information regarding preparing for veterinary school.

Things to keep in mind regarding pre-veterinary medicine at CWU:

  • Pre-veterinary medicine is not a major. Pre-veterinary is a set of prerequisite courses that prepare you for success on the GRE and entry into veterinary school.
  • Veterinary schools are looking for well-rounded applicants. While many students choose a field in the natural sciences for a major,  applicants may choose any major. Since entry into veterinary school is actually more selective than even medical school, students should seriously consider a major that offers a career path of interest. Choose a major that is the best fit for you.
  • Students should seek advising early. While we can advise you on strong coursework preparation that will generally support your admission, we cannot be familiar with the specific requirements of all the individual schools. Please check requirements for individual schools as you prepare your applications.
