 Financial aid may be the difference between success in school and struggling financially to stay in school. DVM scholarships help us compete for the brightest veterinary students, raising our level of excellence.

DVM Student Financial Education, Advising, and Planning

Financial planning is important to the long-term success of your chosen profession. In recognition of this, DVM Student Services offers a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ to advise current DVM students. Upon request, you may set up confidential meetings to review your individual financial circumstances to help guide you, financially, through and beyond the DVM Program. These meetings, along with group sessions and classes, can cover a wide range of financial topics including budgeting, student debt counseling, loan repayment, savings, retirement planning and more. ​


​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 CSU's Student Financial Services website.
