What is pre-veterinary?

Pre-veterinary at Oklahoma State is a statement of intent that demonstrates an interest in exploring a professional veterinary education after graduating from OSU. No one major is a better fit for a future veterinary student, and we encourage degree selection based on individual interests, talents and skills. Students may apply to veterinary school from any major at OSU as long as they have completed coursework required for the veterinary application process.
