MCC can help you reduce the cost of completing your prerequisites for Veterinary School.  Missouri A+ money can be used to pay for 2 years of prerequisites.  If you do not have A+ money, our low tuition rates will help you keep your education affordable.

You can earn a degree while completing Veterinary School prerequisites.  Enroll today in the Associate in Biology degree plan that will provide you the prerequisite courses for applying to Veterinary School.  Follow the semester-by-semester schedule to complete the required Chemistry courses at the community college where our professors focus on student learning.  After you have earned the Associate in Biology degree, then you will transfer to a 4 year University to complete the Biochemistry, Physics, and additional Biology requirements.  The goal is for you to be able to apply to the Veterinary School after your Junior year.
