Pre-Veterinary Medicine (AS.PVET)

Associate in Science

 

The Pre-Veterinary Medicine major is designed for those students who are planning to transfer to a four-year institution of higher learning such as the University of Illinois to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science with a pre-veterinary medicine concentration or seek early admission to a College of Veterinary Medicine. This major can also be used to meet requirements for the pre-veterinary medicine concentration at Eastern Illinois University. This is a sample list of major requirements. Consult a counselor or academic advisor before registering. Four-year college requirements vary from college to college.


Specific graduation requirements are identified through degree audit. Additional developmental courses in math, reading and English may be required based on placement scores. Only courses with a course number of 100 or higher meet graduation requirements for AA/AS/AES degrees.
