 CVMBS offers several opportunities for financial assistance or guidance into our veterinary program with our Vet Prep, Vet Start, and Food Animal Veterinary Career Incentive programs.

DVM Special Programs

​Vet Prep Program

Vet Prep is a one-year program designed to assist economically, educationally, and/or culturally/environmentally disadvantaged students prepare to pursue a degree in veterinary medicine.  Success in this program guarantees admission to begin your Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at CSU. Participants in the program take several courses that will prepare them for their Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and also receive individual guidance in applying for scholarships and need-based financial aid. Candidates do not apply for this program, but are automatically considered if not admitted in the regular DVM admissions process.

Vet Start Program

The Vet Start Program provides guidance using CVMBS's DVM Preparatory Coursework Guide. Students who successfully complete this four-year program will be guaranteed admission to begin their Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at CSU. The College enrolls five high school graduates in this program each year and provides tuition scholarships to all candidates for their undergraduate and DVM educations.

Food Animal Veterinary Career Incentive Program

The FAVCIP accepts up to five applicants per year to complete an undergraduate curriculum focused on food animal veterinary medicine.  The FAVCIP program can (but is not guaranteed to) qualify you for preferred admission to pursue your Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State.
