ACADEMIC & STUDENT AFFAIRS

Welcome.

The College is dedicated to educating veterinary and graduate students, post-graduate veterinarians, and the public; discovering, applying, and disseminating comparative biomedical knowledge and technology; and providing outreach to the veterinary medical profession and public.

The College accepted its first class in 1948. It is located on the campus of the state’s flagship public university, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, about midway between Chicago, Ill., Indianapolis, Ind., and St. Louis, Mo.

The centerpiece of our College is the four-year professional Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree program. These graduates are in demand, and that demand is growing as society recognizes the importance and versatility of this credential, especially in industry and government positions related to biomedical research and public health.

We presently enroll 120 first-year veterinary students each fall. Combined degree programs lead to DVM and master’s in public health degrees for students seeking careers in public health epidemiology and disease control as well as to DVM and PhD degrees for students interested in research careers.
