Veterinary pre-professional program requirements

IU South Bend does not grant a degree in veterinary medicine but you may complete all of your pre-veterinary requirements on the South Bend campus. This plan of study is specifically designed for those students who expect to apply for admission to the Purdue University Veterinary School (www.vet.purdue.edu),  but requirements for other schools should be similar.  Students are eligible for admission after completion of 70 credit hours which, include the following IUSB courses.
