NOTE: The academic year at MSU-CVM for first-year students begins around July 1st. In order for an applicant to be considered for admission, all prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the spring semester prior to matriculation to MSU-CVM.
To be considered for admission, in addition to meeting all academic, testing and deadline requirements, an applicant must be in good standing at his/her current university, as well as at all colleges or universities he/she has attended. A student who has been dismissed from another college of veterinary medicine cannot be considered for admission to MSU-CVM.
A DVM degree by itself may not entitle an individual to legally practice veterinary medicine. An individual should check the requirements of the state he/she wishes to practice in to determine if the North American Veterinary Licensure Examination and/or a state exam is required for legally practicing veterinary medicine.
By the time of graduation, the class of 2011 had a 98% pass rate on the NAVLE. The average NAVLE pass rate for the classes of 2010, 2011, and 2012 was 97%.
