Application Information and Deadlines

  2. Meet TOEFL requirements as set by the CSU Graduate School.
  3. Once admitted to the D.V.M./M.S.T. program you must submit an application to the CSU Graduate School.

If you indicate you wish to be considered for the combined D.V.M./M.S.T. program (on the Colorado Supplemental Application), your application will additionally be considered in the regular D.V.M. admissions pool. When decisions are released, if you receive an OFFER to the D.V.M./M.S.T. program, you will not be further considered in the regular D.V.M. admissions pool, regardless of whether or not you accept or decline the D.V.M./M.S.T. offer. If you are denied or designated as an alternate for the D.V.M./M.S.T. program, your application will be considered in the regular D.V.M. admissions pool.

If you withdraw your acceptance to the D.V.M./M.S.T. program before/after matriculation into the graduate program, you will be dismissed from the professional D.V.M. program. You will have to re-apply for admission to the D.V.M. program or the graduate school.
