Additional Program Information
The Veterinary Technology program was accredited in 1998 by the Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Accreditation allows graduates to be eligible to take the Texas State Licensed Veterinary Technician examination and the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician.
If a prospective student has a felony conviction this could result in denial of licensure. These students would not be eligible for admissions into the program until a declaratory order process is completed with the licensure board and proof of eligibility for licensure or certification is provided
A limited number of qualified students are admitted to the Veterinary Technology Program every fall semester. Prospective students must submit application and documentation by the deadline of June 1. All applications will be reviewed, ranked, and notified by June 15. For further information regarding application process requirements, selection and forms, refer to the Veterinary Technology website: alamo.edu/pac/vet-tech
Accepted students will be required to have a physical exam, tetanus prophylaxis and pre-exposure rabies prophylaxis before entrance for the fall semester. All prerequisite and VTHT courses must be passed with a grade of C or better. NO VTHT course older than 5 years, prior to graduation, may be counted toward the AAS degree or certificate in Veterinary Technology.
