Giving to the College of Veterinary MedicineThe MU College of Veterinary Medicine is Missouri’s only institution that confers the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Thank you for exploring how you can partner with us to make a positive difference in the lives of animals and people.

Whether your interest in supporting our mission to teach, heal, discover and serve is inspired by care your pet received, the desire to help less fortunate animals and their families, an interest in helping the next generation of veterinarians pursue their dreams, or the wish to be a part of a medical breakthrough, we are grateful for your thoughtful consideration. We have many programs that will benefit from additional financial support.


Pre-Veterinary Medicine


I am Interested in This Major

Though Pre-Veterinary Medicine is not an official degree program, Mizzou has resources dedicated to helping interested students pursue admission into veterinary school.  These include:

  • Both Veterinary School Admissions Manager and Student Recruiter.
  • Animal Sciences, Biology, and Microbiology advising offices.

A student should select an undergraduate major based on their interests and talents.  Since some students are not accepted into veterinary medical college, a student should enroll in the school/college offering the degree major selected as a career alternative to veterinary medicine. There is no preference given to any particular major as long as the pre-requisite courses are successfully completed.

Veterinary schools accept applicants with a variety of majors which include everything from Music to Engineering; however, most students choose a Mizzou major with degree program requirements that overlap with requirements for veterinary school such as Animal Sciences, Biology, Microbiology, or Biochemistry.


You can do nearly anything with a Mizzou degree, but here are some common career paths taken by graduates of this major:
