The University of Missouri requires all applicants submit both an application through the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS) found at http://www.AAVMC.org and our Supplemental Application.
Requirements for Application
Applicants must meet all academic requirements regardless of degrees held. Among those requirements is U.S. citizenship or lawful permanent residency and a cumulative GPA of 3.00 achieved from a U.S. regionally accredited college or university.
Each student must complete an application(s) and have official transcripts from all institutions of higher education ever enrolled mailed to VMCAS by September 15, 2017.
Each student must submit scores from the General Record Examination (GRE) test and have results sent to VMCAS by September 15, 2017 (use code 7268). Test scores of 285 (total of verbal and quantitative) and 1.5 on the analytical section are required to submit our application and must have been attained within the last three years. (No scores attained prior to December 31, 2014 will be accepted).
GRE information can be found at the following:
If currently enrolled in a graduate program where a degree would not be completed prior to entering Veterinary School, a request will be sent on submission of our Supplemental Application for a letter from his or her major professor stating knowledge and approval of the student’s application to the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Letters of Recommendation
Letters of recommendation from influential citizens carry no more importance than letters from other individuals. Applicants are allowed to submit up to six evaluations, at least three must be submitted to VMCAS by September 15, 2017. At least one evaluator must be a veterinarian. Evaluations are not accepted from relatives by birth or marriage. Additional letters submitted outside the VMCAS application are not forwarded to the Admissions Committee.
