Admissions Policy

The Admissions Policy of the School of Veterinary Medicine embraces the philosophy of Tuskegee University and embodies the commitment for providing educational opportunities to all students, regardless of race, creed, or national origin. This philosophy embodies a commitment for providing high quality educational opportunities for individuals who have historically been under represented in the fields of veterinary medicine because of their racial, cultural, economic or educational backgrounds. However, the School invites a diversity of talented students from all racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds to participate in its program. The Admissions Committee selects students who exhibit intellectual, personal, moral, and social traits, which are considered desirable in a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Selection is based on all the data submitted by and on behalf of the applicant, not only on academic achievement. It should be noted that satisfactory completion of any number of credits or years of study does not guarantee admissions to the School of Veterinary Medicine.

The deadline for all applications and supporting documents is September 15th.
