Selecting CourseWork  A bachelor’s degree is NOT required for admission into veterinary school.  However, only the most exceptional students are accepted these days without a bachelor of sciences degree. Course selection requires a balance between fulfilling veterinary college requirements and completing the requirements for a degree at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Course requirements differ among veterinary colleges. There are common requirements but some schools may require courses that are not required for your degree program. For example, some veterinary schools require a full year of physics with labs, whereas others may require only a single semester of physics. The same is true for chemistry, while all veterinary schools require a year of inorganic chemistry (with labs); some schools only require a semester of organic chemistry, whereas others require a full year.  It is important that the student take all the required courses for the veterinary schools he/she is applying to, while also meeting the course requirements for their degree program.  

The pre-veterinary advisor can provide guidance on the appropriate courses to take to fulfill the specific requirements for veterinary school and the degree requirements for the student’s course of study.
