Below are listed the most common pre-requisites for veterinary schools and the Bradley courses which will satisfy them. Be aware that each veterinary school may establish their own specific pre-requisites which may vary from this list, so it is your responsibility to carefully research the admission requirements for schools to which you plan to apply. Pre-requisite courses may be taken as part of a Bradley major, minor, Bradley Core or free electives. Work with your academic advisor and Dr. Bennett to plan the best timing and sequence for completing pre-requisites for veterinary schools. All science courses should be taken with labs unless otherwise noted.

See AAVMC for program-specific requirements.
