2003-2005 Academic Catalog
Application for admission to a veterinary school is normally made during the senior year of college. To be eligible for admission, students must complete a series of specific prerequisite courses as part of their undergraduate program at St. Catherine's. While prerequisite requirements vary in detail, all emphasize course work in the natural sciences. However, because veterinary schools do not require a specific academic major for admission, students may complete these prerequisite course as part of an undergraduate program that includes any major of their choosing.

BIOL 121, 122 General Biology
BIOL 290 Genetics
BIOL 321 Biology of Microorganisms
