 It's tough waiting around for responses to your application to the DVM Program. Use the guidelines below to determine when and how you will hear from the admissions committee.

DVM Program Communication Process


 Necessary Applications


1. Getting Started

Once the application is open, you will be able to create an account in our DVM Admissions Portal using the link to the Colorado Supplemental Application (CSA). Please create only one account per application cycle.

2. All Updates, Confirmations, and Notifications will occur via the DVM Admissions Portal. 

3. Evaluation & Notification of Admissions Status

The Office of Veterinary Admissions has a Phased Admissions evaluation and notification process which has been divided into four phases. This will provide applicants with an estimate of when they might expect to be notified about their admission status. The phases are as follows:  

  • Phase One: early October - Notification and denial of applicants who have an incomplete application. These are applicants who did not submit the VMCAS and/or the Colorado Supplemental Application(s) and/or associated application fee by the deadline.

  • Phase Two: mid-October to mid-November - Applicants for the UAF/CSU Program or the Combined DVM Programs will be notified, via the portal, if they have been denied, selected as an alternate or offered a position. Applicants who have a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or less will be read, some will be denied and will receive notification via the portal.

  • Phase Three: mid-November to late-December (late-January for WICHE applicants) - Applicants will be notified if they have been denied, selected as an alternate, or offered a position in the DVM Program. Also, early non-sponsored offers will be made to those WICHE candidates who were highly ranked by the CSU Admissions Committee members.

  • Phase Four: early May to late-August - Accepted applicants will have exclusive access to the DVM Admissions Portal.
