Preparing your application is the first step you’ll take on your journey to becoming a veterinarian. The AAVMC’s VMCAS is a user-friendly system for applying to veterinary medical schools.
VMCAS is the centralized application service for Colleges of Veterinary Medicine. Through VMCAS you can complete one application and send all your required materials through this service. Your application is then processed, verified for accuracy, and sent to the veterinary medical schools you designate.
Make sure to bookmark this page because it will be your hub of information throughout the VMCAS Application Cycle! Return often for updates!
