OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME


Believe it or not, you could be only months away from turning one of your veterinary school goals into a reality in 2022.

WHY START YOUR DVM IN MAY?

May can be an ideal time to start taking steps to pursue your passion for veterinary medicine! Here are three great reasons why.

EARN YOUR DVM SOONER

Starting the Ross Vet accelerated program in May allows students to graduate from veterinary school nine months sooner than students who wait to start vet school the following September at U.S. schools. That means that by starting vet school in May 2022, you can be a practice-ready DVM as soon as September 2025!

START VET SCHOOL WHEN YOU’RE READY

Ross Vet is the only AVMA-accredited vet school with a May semester intake. This allows you to start earning your DVM when you’re ready—whether you’ve graduated early or have taken a gap year. Beginning veterinary school in May lets you get a head start on your veterinary journey without having to wait until fall.

DON’T LOSE MOMENTUM

You’ve spent years dreaming of a career in veterinary medicine—why wait even longer? Spend your summer in the Caribbean while taking steps towards your DVM. Best of all, you don’t have to give up fun summer activities. St. Kitts offers plenty to do outside of the classroom, including hiking, snorkeling, festivals, and more! 

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

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

FLEXIBLE START DATES

JANUARY

Start at Ross Vet in January and you may complete your DVM at the same time as students who begin in the previous September semester at a U.S. school*. 

Programs start January 9, 2023.

MAY

Starting in May allows you to finish 9 months earlier than waiting and starting in the following September semester at a U.S. school*.  Programs start May 9, 2022. 

SEPTEMBER

Start in our fall session and you may finish 4 months sooner than starting at the same time as  other AVMA-accredited programs in the U.S.*  Programs start September 5, 2022.

* 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.
