The cost of education can be overwhelming, especially when you are pursuing your Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. The exact cost of your tuition will depend upon your Tuition Classification and Residency. Once you know your classification you can take a look at CSU's tuition and fees.

Financial Aid

Sixty-three percent of CSU students receive some type of financial assistance. The CSU Office of Admissions can help you assess options to pay for your education. To learn more about need-based aid and merit-based scholarships visit Student Financial Services.

CVMBS Scholarships & Awards

The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences offers over a million dollars in scholarships each year. Students pursuing their DVM are the primary recipients of these awards, but all CVMBS students meeting the application requirements are considered for awards.
