Registration Procedures

Registration for Veterinary Technician classes is on a first-come, first served basis according to the college-wide registration process. Be sure to check your registration time and register as close to that time as possible. You should also check your registration status prior to that time to ensure you have no holds on your ability to register.

Students must complete the required pre-requisite courses in order to register for fall 2014 classes and must have completed 40 hours of observation in a veterinary clinic or hospital prior to May 2, 2014.  Yearly enrollment in the program is currently being explored. Currently, after the fall 2014 registration, the next opportunity to enroll in the program will be fall 2016.

Degree seeking students who have had a break in attendance for one year or more must complete a new application
