Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Herbert College of Agriculture

Pre-Veterinary Medicine – Stage I is a two-year plan for students seeking to progress to the Pre-Veterinary Medicine-Stage II or Pre-Veterinary Medicine 3+1 concentrations. Students must apply for entry into the Pre-Veterinary Medicine-Stage II or PVM 3+1 concentration after completion of 60 total credit hours with a minimum of 15 credit hours taken at UTK. Students must have a minimum cumulative UTK GPA of 3.0. Courses listed below must be completed with a minimum grade of C (or an S for AP courses):

BIOL 101 *-BIOL 102 *-BIOL 160 * or BIOL 150 *-BIOL 159 *-BIOL 160 *; CHEM 122 *-CHEM 123 *-CHEM 132 *-CHEM 133 *; MATH 125 * or MATH 132 * or MATH 141 * or MATH 151 *; ANSC 220 .

If a student does not meet the above criteria after completion of 60 total credit hours with a minimum of 15 credit hours taken at UTK, the student cannot progress into STAGE II or 3+1 and must meet with their advisor to discuss changing concentrations or majors. A student may only apply once to progress to STAGE II or 3+1. If a Pre-Veterinary Medicine Stage I student receives a C– in ANSC 220 , the student cannot progress into STAGE II or 3+1 and must meet with their advisor to discuss changing concentrations or majors. If a student in any concentration receives less than a C– in ANSC 220 , they cannot progress in the major. Students must complete ANSC 100 , ANSC 150 *, and ANSC 220  with minimum grades of C, C, and C– respectively to remain in the Animal Science Major.

To remain in the Animal Science Pre-veterinary medicine 3+1 concentration, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

uTrack Requirements


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.
