Animal Science Major, BS in Animal Science – Pre-Veterinary Medicine Concentration


uTrack Requirements (for students entering Fall 2013 or later)

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who enter prior to Fall 2015.

To remain in the Animal Science Pre-veterinary medicine concentration, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA and earn no less than a C grade in any animal science course above ANSC 100 , BIOL 101 *-BIOL 102 *-BIOL 160 * or BIOL 150 *-BIOL 159 *-BIOL 160 *, and CHEM 120 *-CHEM 128 *-CHEM 130 *. If a student does not meet the milestone criteria, the student must meet with their advisor to discuss potential career paths and to consider alternative concentrations or majors.
