The pre-veterinary transfer track is designed to guide students to courses that, if completed with no grade less than “C” and a GPA greater than 3.0, will meet the minimum requirements for admission to the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. An advisor in the Department of Biology is available to assist students with course scheduling and to provide information about applying to the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. Students wishing to transfer to another veterinary school should obtain detailed information about the requirements of that program. Students are encouraged to incorporate requirements of the biology major into their course electives under this transfer program as this will help them complete an undergraduate degree in a timely fashion should they decide not to attend veterinary school. Furthermore, many students find completion of the B.S. degree program in makes increases their competitiveness for admission to veterinary school.
