Planning on starting this September?

Start early and finish even earlier!

Our September class fills up quickly, and many applicants are waitlisted until January, so if you're ready to start your DVM, consider applying for May. Our admissions team will help you with all the logistics—from knowing what to pack, to booking your flight, to finding housing—and to answer any other questions you may have about starting early.

Curious about the benefits of May?

  • Start early, finish earlier: Start a semester early this may, and you could be practice-ready by August of 2020—9 months earlier than other AVMA-accredited schools in the US.
  • While the September class fills up early, the May class is usually smaller, and allows more time for individual attention with instructors.
  • Don't wait longer than you have to—by waiting for the September class, you could risk being waitlisted for January, and while the January class provides some of the same benefits as May, you'll be starting—and finishing—7 months later than May.

Note: If you are interested in the postgraduate MSc or PhD programs, send an email to postgrad@rossvet.edu.kn.
