Frequently Asked Questions
Do you round GPAs? (Example: My GPA is a 2.67; do you round it to a 2.70?)
No, GPAs are not rounded. Please refer to the admissions criteria for the GPA requirement of each program.
Do I have to have my high school transcript?
Yes. Your high school transcript is required as part of the admissions packet.
Do I have to have all of my college transcripts?
Yes. All college transcripts must be present in order to evaluate the cumulative GPA. A transcript is required for each individual school you have attended.
If I am currently a MACC student, do I still need to send a transcript in my admissions packet?
If it has been less than 5 years since you have attended MACC, you do not need to include your MACC transcript. If it has been greater than 5 years since you last attended MACC, you will need to include the MACC transcript in your admission packet.
Can I submit my admissions packet even though it is not fully completed?
Admissions packets must be complete when submitted. Packets missing required admissions items will not be accepted.
Can I have my references write a letter of recommendation instead of completing the required reference forms?
References must be completed on the required reference forms. You will find them in your admissions packet.
If I am accepted in the program where should I expect to complete the clinical practicum?
Veterinary Technology students will work with the program director and local veterinarians to determine where they will complete the clinical practicum, which is in the summer semester in between the 2 years of the program.
If I have many of the non-Veterinary Technology courses already completed, can I take Veterinary Technology courses all together and get the program done in less than 2 years?
No, the Veterinary Technology courses follow a set sequence with the first class starting in the fall semester.
