Pre-vet at CSU: A Q&A

Interested in a future as a veterinarian? As an undergrad, you’ll get the support you need from our pre-vet advising services.

Follow along as Dr. Gretchen Delcambre, Director of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) Admissions at CSU, explains how pre-vet advising works and how it will prepare you to be a competitive applicant.

About pre-vet advising at CSU

Pre-vet advising at CSU is not a major or degree program. Rather, it offers one-on-one expert guidance to undergraduate students who plan to apply to Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) programs upon graduation.

As a pre-vet student, you do not need to choose a specific undergraduate major. Pre-vet advising is open to any student — in any major — who is interested in the veterinary field.

CSU Pre-Vet Advisor Ann Bowen is an expert on what it takes to be well-prepared for DVM programs around the world. Throughout your time as an undergrad, she will guide you from start to finish in areas like practical experience, prerequisites, applying, and interviewing. This will ensure that you will be ready to apply to the DVM programs of your choice upon graduation.

Ann not only works with current students — she’s happy to speak with future Rams, too. You can talk with her by emailing or by calling the Collaborative for Student Achievement to make an appointment.
