Thank you for your interest in the degree programs offered by the VHS&T Department.  As a department, our goal is to educate veterinary medical technology students and veterinary health science students together in an effort to establish a mind-set of collaborative learning.  A cohesive veterinary health care team is essential for providing the highest standard of animal care.  Veterinary professionals also make positive contributions to their community by promoting animal welfare, fostering the human animal bond, and providing client education.


Equine Veterinary Education Program

Equine Veterinary Education Program Admission Requirement

Admissions Standards
The LMU EVEP is a guaranteed professional admission program (G.P.A.), meaning admitted students will have a guaranteed spot in the Richard A. Gillespie College of Veterinary Medicine, provided they meet the LMU-CVM admission requirements at the end of their 2.5 years of undergraduate coursework.
As such, the admission process is rigorous and holds high academic standards, in addition to requiring extensive horse experience.
To be considered for admission to the EVEP, applicants must have:
● a Math ACT ≥ 24 (SAT 570-580)*
● a Reading ACT ≥ 24 (SAT 570-590)*
● a High School GPA (grade point average) ≥ 3.5
Please note that, while general admission to LMU as an undergraduate does not require ACT or SAT scores, the EVEP requires applicants to submit these scores because of its status as a G.P.A. program. Applicants to the EVEP must submit either ACT or SAT scores to be considered.
