The Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine Admissions Committee reviews veterinary school applications throughout the year, accepting students for our January, May, and September classes—providing you the flexibility to start on your own timeline. No matter which semester you choose, you will begin acquiring the knowledge, skills, and technical expertise of a practice-ready veterinarian from day one.

APPLY TO THE ONLY AVMA-ACCREDITED DVM PROGRAM WITH THREE START DATES

Start when it makes sense. You lead a busy life, so we’ve adapted our admissions process to meet your needs.

* Students must successfully pass all courses prescribed in the Ross Vet preclinical and clinical curriculum without failing or repeating any courses, and pass the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) to complete their degree within this time frame. Comparison to U.S. School is based on a traditional 4-year curriculum.
