Admission to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine requires a rigorous program of undergraduate study in the basic sciences. Students are encouraged to plan their program of undergraduate study carefully so that they will receive a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture whether or not they are later admitted to the College of Veterinary Medicine. The College of Veterinary Medicine has a limited enrollment policy. Selection of the best qualified applicants for admission is the responsibility of a faculty committee within the College. The committee considers applicants who have met the minimum academic requirements including at least three years of study, or its equivalent, at an accredited college. Students normally apply for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine during their third year of study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. Students not admitted to Veterinary Medicine may continue their study in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences for a fourth year to complete the requirements for the B.S.A. degree in any major they choose. Several degree programs within the College are compatible with the Pre-Veterinary Medicine program. The program of study will meet the dual objectives of completing the requirements for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine and the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Students should contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, College of Veterinary Medicine, for a more detailed description of requirements for admission to that college.
Admission to Pharmacy is determined by the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT). It is recommended that prospective students take this test early, since the January test score is the last one that can be considered for fall semester matriculation.
The Terry College of Business accepts applications from third- and fourth-year Pre-Business students in the fall and spring semesters only. The number of admissions by major depend on the quality of the applicant pool and demand for and availability of space in each major. Currently enrolled UGA students must have a minimum 2.6 GPA and must have completed or be in progress of completing the core curriculum in order to apply to a Terry major.
Students enroll in the Pre-Pharmacy program first for two years at a minimum of 60 credit hours. Admission is determined by the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).

''Everything about UGA made it the perfect fit for me. Out of high school, I knew that I wanted to major in mathematics education, and I have had some great professors who are extremely knowledgeable and current in their field. Each year, I stay involved with Relay for Life by serving on the Logistics Committee. Seeing so many college students gathered together to celebrate loved ones and fight for a cure for cancer is always so inspiring. Additionally, I volunteer in local middle and high schools where I visit classes during the school day multiple times each week. This gives me the opportunity to get into a mathematics classroom and mentor many local students.''
The primary focus of the Pre-Health Advising Office is to advise students on the various graduate and professional programs available in the healthcare field, the admission pre-requisites for those programs, and the application and interview process. All students are invited to the Pre-Health orientation offered several times during the Fall and Spring semesters. The orientation addresses where course admission requirements can be found, specific requirements for several medical, dental, optometry and osteopathic schools, how specific courses are helpful, national application services, statistics on the most recent accepted applicant pools including national admission test scores, qualities of successful applicants, resources for volunteering and shadowing, and services of the Pre-Health Advising Office.
“My favorite professor is Kathy Simpson from the Department of Kinesiology. I met her my first year during a mentor program created by the Office of Multicultural Services and Programs. After we met, I starting working in the biomechanics lab with her research team. Her mentorship has greatly contributed to my college success so far and I was lucky enough to take her biomechanics course before she retired this past year.”
''Figuring out how the world works interests me. I love being able to show students how ecology is applicable to them. Ecosystems of the World (ECOL 3880H) is great fun because as an Honors course with a smaller class size, it engenders itself to a great classroom dynamic and interactions with students. I use the lab section of my courses to get students understanding the process of collecting their own data for analysis and write-up. I constantly strive to get my undergrads involved in research and have up to 8-10 students working in my lab...''
''I chose to attend UGA because of its strong science curriculum. I wanted to be challenged in a way that would help prepare me for a career in medicine. I’ve been blessed with many great professors. Apart from UGA’s respected academia, I was drawn to UGA’s rich tradition that is embedded in the South, Georgia Bulldog football, and the Classic City. Athens is arguably the best college town in the South.''
