Welcome. We are looking forward to your arrival on campus and congratulate you on becoming a member of the Class of 2016.  We have sent you a letter with the link to this website and hope you will find it helpful in getting all your required forms completed.

All forms are due no later than 5:00 p.m., June 22, 2012. 

You will see that Orientation activities are the entire week of August 20 – 24, 2012.  To better explain our process, some of the activities we are requesting that you complete under the heading of  “Required before Orientation” are meant to be completed on Monday and Tuesday.  The iVLE experience is all day Wednesday and while optional, is a big hit with all first years who attend.  It is a great way to meet your classmates away from the campus and get to know a few of the faculty before classes begin.  Mandatory orientation is “officially” Thursday and Friday of that week; expect to spend most of both days at the college.

All forms (includes rabies forms but not Student Medical Forms) are to be sent to:

College of Veterinary Medicine
Office of Academic and Student Affairs
2001 South Lincoln Avenue
Room 2271G
Urbana, IL 61802

Student Medical Forms are to be sent to:

McKinley Health Center
1109 South Lincoln Avenue
Urbana, Ill 61801

We look forward to meeting you and orienting you to the DVM program.  Please check this site thoroughly and often for any updates or revisions that may be necessary.  If you still need additional information please call us at 217-265-0380 or e-mail us at  We are here to help you in any way we can.
