The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine requires that all applicants submit two applications in order to be eligible for admission:

Links to these applications can be found below. If you have any questions regarding your application, please contact: studentservices@vetmed.ufl.edu

VMCAS ApplicationThe University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine is a participant in the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS). This centralized application service receives, processes, and forwards applications to the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine for the Admission Committee’s use in selecting candidates each year.  Applications are typically available in early June via the VMCAS website. Only one application is necessary for applying to any of the VMCAS colleges.

VMCAS will perform Transcript Verification on all submitted applications. We encourage applicants to submit official transcripts to VMCAS as early as possible, preferably at least one month ahead of the deadline in order to allow time for verification. 

Transcripts should be mailed to the following VMCAS address:

VMCAS – Transcripts
