Early Admissions Programs
Veterinary Food Animal Scholars Program
The Veterinary Food Animal Scholars Program (VetFAST) addresses a nation-wide need for more food animal veterinarians. In response to this need, the College of Veterinary Medicine created VetFAST, an early-decision program for students interested in a career in food animal veterinary medicine. Undergraduate students in an approved VetFAST degree program can apply for provisional program acceptance during their freshman or sophomore years of college.
Veterinary Leadership through Early Admissions for Diversity
To meet the increasing demand for veterinarians and to promote diversity within the veterinary student body, the University of Minnesota has introduced the Veterinary Leadership through Early Admissions for Diversity (VetLEAD) program. VetLEAD creates a pathway into veterinary school for high-ability students at partner institutions, such as Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.
