St. George’s University

As part of a new joint partnership, select students from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science in animal science may gain direct entrance into St. George’s School of Veterinary Medicine.

To qualify, Rutgers students must earn a grade point average of 3.4 or better on their pre-veterinary courses, and a minimum score of 305 on the Graduate Record Examination. Those accepted will complete three years of study at St. George’s University and one clinical year at one of the university’s 29 affiliated universities in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Ireland, upon which time they will earn their Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

“The Animal Sciences program at Rutgers University has a long history of successfully preparing our students for admission to schools of veterinary medicine,” said Larry Katz, Ph.D., senior associate director of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, director of Rutgers Cooperative Extension and professor of animal sciences. “This new relationship with St. George’s University provides a unique opportunity to offer qualified candidates the exciting opportunity to study veterinary medicine in a stimulating setting alongside students with diverse international backgrounds.”

Students interested in entering the program must submit their application by May 15 for the August class and Oct. 15 for the January class.
