Welcome to the University of Kentucky’s Pre-Vet Advising Program!

Are you interested in attending veterinary school after college? Do you have a passion for animals, science, and medicine? If so, the University of Kentucky (UK) may be a great fit for you.

Pre-veterinary Medicine at UK is not a degree program, which allows students to follow their specific passions. Students frequently major in Animal Sciences, Equine Science and Management, Ag and Medical Biotechnology, Biology, and Chemistry. UK pre-vet students have also obtained degrees in Fine Arts, Education, Communication and many others programs. No matter what major or degree you prefer at UK, pre-vet advisors are available to assist you through the veterinary school preparation process.   

Through Pre-Vet Advising, UK students are provided up-to-date information and opportunities. Pre-vet advisors work closely with each student to ensure they are given every opportunity for success.

If you are a prospective student and would like to set up a tour of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment or a meeting with a pre-vet advisor, please call the Center for Student Success at 859-257-3469 or go to http://students.ca.uky.edu/campusvisit
