Ask an Admissions Advisor

We offer individual appointments with an admissions advisor to discuss very specific questions about a prospective student’s circumstances, including:

  • their academic history 
  • transcripts 
  • suggestions for gaining additional experience
  • prerequisite courses

Advisor appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. CST to 3:30 p.m. CST

 Contact us at [email protected] for more details.

Ask a Student Ambassador

We have over forty student ambassadors for the College of Veterinary Medicine, and they are a fantastic source of information about not only school life, but life in the Twin Cities area. Do you want to know things like how heavy the homework load is the first year, the best place to park on campus or where to get the best pizza in the neighborhood?  Send your question to “Ask a Student Ambassador” at  [email protected].
