Students hoping to enroll in a college of veterinary medicine in 2022 can begin working on their applications and, if they qualify, receive a fee waiver.
The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges reported that application fees stayed the same in 2021: $220 for the first selected program and $120 for each additional one. The AAVMC beefed up its waiver fund to $100,000.
“We realize that the costs of applying to professional schools in many disciplines can add up, and that can be challenging during these difficult economic times,” said the AAVMC’s CEO, Andrew T. Maccabe, DVM, MPH, JD. “One of our core goals in recruiting students is to increase diversity in every respect, including socioeconomic status. This fee waiver program is an important tool for helping us do that, and we’re pleased to be able to expand it.”
Applicants won’t be able to direct their common application to individual DVM programs until May 12.
The process begins on the Veterinary Medical College Application Service website, bit.ly/3qOUp0k. Newly posted information about admissions requirements and individual veterinary programs in the United States, Canada and overseas is available at applytovetschool.org.
The submission deadline is Sept. 15.
