Professional DVM Program Admissions

THE DEADLINE FOR THE 2018 VMCAS APPLICATION HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21ST AT 11:59 PM EST.

Welcome to The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine's Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program!

Each year the College admits 162 new veterinary students. Due to the number of applicants exceeding the number of spaces available, the College utilizes selective admissions procedures.  Applicants are evaluated on academic profiles and certain other non-cognitive factors including motivation and commitment to the profession, character, communication and interpersonal skills, leadership ability, animal exposure and knowledge of the profession. 

To learn more about the college and our programs, we strongly encourage prospective students to attend one of our Buckeye Vet Prep Academy events held each year.  At the Buckeye Vet Prep Academy events there will be student panels, admissions presentations, and hospital tours.    

If you scroll down below, you will find helpful information about the admission requirements, selection process, application checklist, dates and deadlines, frequently asked questions, and financial aid, etc.  If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact us at dvmprospective@osu.edu or call 614-292-2257.
