While not offering a degree in veterinary medicine, CWU does provide the necessary prerequisite courses and an environment that promotes successful admission to veterinary medicine programs both in the USA and abroad. Although some veterinary medicine programs do not require an undergraduate degree for admission, most CWU students do complete their degree before moving into a veterinary medicine program. Below is a list of suggested courses that will fulfill the prerequisites of many veterinary programs. However, each of the 28 veterinary schools in the United States has its own requirements. You must check to be sure that these courses will meet the admission requirements for each veterinary school to which you will apply. For more information on this program, please go to: www.cwu.edu/health-career/pre-veterinary-medicine-home.

Pre-Professional Programs Information


These programs are planned for two groups of students-those who want one or two years of college work prior to entering an occupation, and those who want to do pre-professional work for one, two, three, or four years before entering a professional school, university, or college.

The programs described are not to be considered unalterable. They represent patterns that generally agree with the requirements of many professional schools. Since there are many variations in the requirements of the professional schools, students should, after consulting the CWU catalog, select courses required by the institution from which they expect to earn a degree.

The following pre-professional programs are offered: pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-dietetics, pre-engineering, pre-law, pre-medical technology, pre-medicine, pre-nursing in public health, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary.
