Wrapping up the paperwork


Make sure you complete any outstanding prerequisites by the conclusion of the Spring 2019 semester.  If you are not registered or enrolled for outstanding prerequisites, please notify our office immediately, as you are no longer eligible for admission.  Transcripts are due for outstanding prerequisites as soon as the course has been completed, but no later than June 1, 2019.  Should you fail to adhere to this policy, your seat will be automatically forfeited.

Transcripts for Spring 2019 must be sent to the Student Services Office if you took any coursework in Spring, regardless of whether these courses were or were not prerequisites. If you received a degree in Spring, then your final transcript must show conferral of degree. Final transcripts are due to our office by June 1, 2019.


To secure your seat in the class, we require a $300 Advance Enrollment Deposit (AED) paid online by April 15, 2019.  The AED will be applied toward your Fall 2019 semester tuition.  You will receive an e-mail with online payment instructions from our office as soon as you confirm your intention to enroll.


Download and complete the following documents. All documents must be signed and the original completed forms must be mailed or hand delivered to  Student Services Office, NC State College of Veterinary Medicine, 1060 William Moore Drive, Box 8401, Raleigh, NC 27607.
