No late GRE scores will be accepted.
Official transcripts from ALL postsecondary institutions you have attended are required. This is necessary even though credits may show up as transfer credits on another institution's transcript, you took only one course at the institution, or you took the college credits during high school.
If credits have been taken at a foreign (non-U.S.) institution, the applicant must follow the VMCAS instructions for foreign transcripts. Since this may take some time, applicants are urged to start this process shortly after the VMCAS application opens.
The FINAL deadline for RECEIPT of transcripts is September 15, 2015.
Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 transcripts need to be sent directly to Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine at the following address.
Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine Supplemental Application
IMPORTANT - You must start your VMCAS Application first and then your Supplemental Application. You need your VMCAS ID number to create your Supplemental Application account. Once your Supplemental Application account is created we are able to record information on your Status Page and communicate with you via the Message Board which is our primary method of communication. Your VMCAS application does not need to be submitted before creating your Supplemental Application.
After completing the Supplemental Application, print a copy for your records. Submit the Supplemental Application and print the Signature Page. The signed Signature Page and a non-refundable $75 processing fee for US citizens or $95 processing fee for international applicants must be sent to the following address. Processing fees are good for two consecutive years. If you applied last year to enter Fall 2015, you do not need to pay the fee for this year, entering Fall 2016. (Degree seeking Iowa State University students and Iowa State University alumni do not need to pay the processing fee.)
Veterinary Medicine Admissions
Checks for the processing fee should be made payable to Iowa State University. Please be sure your VMCAS ID is written on the signature page and on the check.
The FINAL deadline for submitting the Supplemental Application is September 15, 2015, 11:59 pm Eastern Time.
Checking Application Status
Communication with the applicant will be via the messaging system on the Status Page and very occasionally by e-mail. Phone calls will not be accepted. Please contact us with any concerns through the messaging system on the Status Page. It is imperative that you check your messages and and other information on your Status Page frequently. If you have problems viewing your status page or supplemental application, please contact the programmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is the applicant's responsibility to see that all materials are received by the appropriate deadline and that the College is notified of how problems with their application will be remedied. By checking the Status Page frequently, applicants will be able to quickly resolve any problems with their application.
PLEASE NOTE: Questions concerning the application will only be discussed with the applicant. Due to confidentiality we cannot discuss the application with anyone else including parents, spouses, friends, employers, etc.
