Veterinary Early Acceptance

The Early Acceptance Program allows high-acheiving, highly motivated high school seniors to earn guaranteed acceptance into the Richard A. Gillespie College of Veterinary Medicine upon successful completion of their undergraduate degree at LMU, provided they meet benchmarks determined by the Admissions Committee.

Admitted students can expect to complete three years of undergraduate studies. In lieu of a fourth year of undergraduate studies, the fourth year will be comprised of their first year of veterinary school. Students will receive their Bachelor's Degree in Veterinary Health Science (BS VHS) following completion of their first year of veterinary school. Accepted students will save one year of undergraduate study and tuition. 

Admissions Requirements:

  • Students must complete both the Early Acceptance Program (EAP) and the general LMU application.
  • Entering freshmen will enroll in the EAP under the Veterinary Health Science (VHS) program. 
  • Applicants must meet specific academic requirements:
    • Reading ACT ≥ 24, SAT 570-590
    • Math ACT ≥ 24, SAT 570-590
