Veterinary students who have been enrolled in a veterinary school accredited by the Council on Education of the AVMA may apply for transfer to Long Island University College of Veterinary Medicine
Applicants in good standing with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 at the school of origin are eligible to transfer on a space available basis and must meet admissions requirements.
Due to the unique nature of the DVM program at LIU-CVM students will only be considered for transfer into semesters 2 through 5. The applicant must submit evidence that the curriculum at the school of origin is comparable to that at LIU-CVM.
Students who have been dismissed from another veterinary school for academic or non-academic reasons are not eligible to transfer to LIU-CVM.
The number of transfer students admitted each year will be determined by the availability of space that may occur as a result of absolute or relative attrition.
