Prerequisites Admissions How to Apply

We are excited to announce that the Veterinary Technology Program has obtained approval from MSU Academic Governance to change the name of our program to the Veterinary Nursing Program, effective spring 2020.

This change will more accurately convey the content of the Program and help to clarify the goals and purpose of the Program and the type of careers available to graduates of the program. As a leader in veterinary medical education, the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine will be among the leaders advancing the professional identity of our graduates.
