Although Kentucky does not have a school of veterinary medicine, a limited number of students who are residents of Kentucky are selected to enter training in veterinary medicine at Auburn University in Auburn, AL., and Tuskegee Institute in Tuskegee, AL.
It is sometimes possible to enter veterinary school with 3 years of study at NKU. However, because many more students apply to veterinary schools than are accepted, it is strongly advised that all pre-vet students plan their curricula in such a way that the addition of a 4th year of coursework will satisfy NKU’s requirements for the bachelor’s degree, usually in biological sciences or chemistry.
To design a 4-year curriculum that fulfills the pre-veterinary requirements and the requirements for a bachelor’s degree, interested students should work closely with their advisors.
Additional Pre-Professional Programs Offered:
- Pre-Medical or Physician Assistant
- Pre-Physical Therapy
- Pre-Veterinary Medicine
- Pre-Wildlife Management
About Pre-Professional Programs
Pre-professional programs are offered as a service to NKU students who plan to attend a professional program following their work at NKU.
If you are interested in a pre-professional program, or if you don't see your professional area of interest here, please contact an advisor before registering for classes.
