Baccalaureate Degree Completion Program for Graduate Veterinary Technicians
This program is designed to enable graduate veterinary technicians to become veterinary technologists. The Bachelor Completion Program builds upon college credits and the associate degree equivalent earned from an AVMA-accredited veterinary technician program. In total, 128 credit hours are required for the B.S. degree, including credits transferred from the degree obtained at an AVMA-accredited veterinary technology program. In order to graduate from Purdue under this program, transfer students must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours at 30000- to 40000-level courses at the Purdue University West Lafayette campus.
Although transfer students from other AVMA-accredited veterinary technician programs may be able to enter the Bachelor Completion Program at Purdue and earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Veterinary Technology, limited class size necessitates a competitive admission process for the few available openings. If admitted, a course-by-course evaluation of transcripts from other programs will be completed to determine transfer credit that will be applied towards the degree.
