^ – These courses are listed as electives that should be helpful in understanding animal science but will not transfer directly as a requirement for veterinary medicine.

Note: Please check with transfer institution for their specific requirements and check with a NIACC counselor/advisor for further transfer planning.

    • Sample schedule leads to an AS Degree, check with transfer institution regarding appropriate transfer degree for major.  Adding additional humanities & social science courses can lead to an AA degree, as well.  Check with your NIACC counselor for information on degree requirements.
    • Veterinary Medicine is a competitive admission program. Check with transfer institution for specific application & GPA requirements.
    • It may be possible to substitute BIO-206 & BIO-207, Anatomy & Physiology I & II for a prerequisite Mammalian Anatomy & Physiology course.
    • Check with transfer institution for Foreign Language & Diversity Requirements.
