Veterinary Technology Degree Requirements 

Vet Tech students in class 

Associate in Applied Science 2012-2013

 

Self-advising is not recommended.

  1. Interested students are strongly encouraged to meet with a veterinary medical technology adviser to plan a program. This assures the student of proper placement and avoids misunderstanding of requirements and regulations.
  2. If enrolling in courses before admission to the veterinary medical technology sequence, the student may self-register under curriculum code TR 010 (Pre-Veterinary Technology). Speaking with an adviser first is recommended. Completion of the general education classes can be done prior to acceptance into this program. If these classes are completed prior to enrollment in the program, then all of the required sequence courses each semester may total less than 12 semester credit hours. 12 hours each semester is considered full time.
  3. Registration for the Veterinary Medical Technology sequence courses can only be done after acceptance into the program, and after the group orientation sessions, or by appointment with a veterinary medical technology adviser. Speak with an adviser to select appropriate courses to fulfill the 74-hour graduation requirement.
