Admissions

Students must be accepted into the program before taking Veterinary Technology courses. All courses required within the listed curriculum must be passed with a "C" or better in order to progress to the next semester's courses.

Applications are accepted starting April 1. The application deadline is May 31 and applications can be obtained by attending an informational meeting. Persons interested in the Veterinary Technology Program are encouraged to visit the Program's website (http://www.blinn.edu/twe/vet_tech/index.html) to learn more about the program and to sign up for one of the informational sessions. Persons with extenuating circumstances, such as distance, that would prohibit attendance at an information session should use the faculty link at the above website to contact the Director, Facilitator, or Administrative Assistant for more information and an application packet. Prior to the application deadline, applicants must have completed prerequisite course work with at least a "C" in each course, gained at least 40 hours of veterinary supervised experiences, and taken and passed the HOBET (> 70 composite) OR SAT (>1050 verbal/math) OR ACT (>24 verbal/math). The basis for acceptance into the program includes total GPA (greater than 2.5 is strongly recommended), completion of general education courses, letters of recommendation, additional veterinary supervised experiences, general animal experiences, and community service. Top applicants will be selected for an interview.

Applicants accepted into the Veterinary Technology Program must attend a mandatory orientation prior to the start of the fall semester.  Final admission is dependent on providing proof of:

  1. current immunizations (including meningitis, and Hepatitis B, and Rabies prophylaxis*, both of which are a three injection series),
  2. results from a current TB test,
  3. CPR certification for Health Care Providers,
  4. passage of a criminal background check and drug screen.

*Rabies prophylaxis series may be administered through the Blinn Health Center or student's private provider, or students must show proof of a protective rabies titer within the last 2 years if they have already had the vaccine series.
