The University of Missouri requires all applicants submit an application through the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS) found at http://www.AAVMC.org.
Note: The AAVMC’s Admissions & Recruitment Committee (ARC) and the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), have made a decision to extend the VMCAS 2019 Application Deadline to Friday, September 21, 2018, @ 11:59 PM Eastern Time, for all applicants. This applies to applications to the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine.
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 submit a complete application to the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS). Students are required to send official transcript(s) from all institutions of higher education ever enrolled, scores from the General Record Examine (GRE) and have returned to VMCAS three of the allowed eLOR’s (one being from a veterinarian) by September 17, 2018. They must hold an application status of “verified” as well as having paid both the VMCAS application fee and the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine application processing fee.
Note: as of the 2018-19 admissions application cycle, there is no MU Vet Med Supplemental Application for admissions. While in previous years the Supplemental Application was used to ask additional questions, as of this cycle, those questions have been incorporated into the VMCAS application.
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 your VMCAS 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 17, 2018. 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.
