Why should I undertake a graduate program?

Earning a graduate certificate, master’s, or doctorate degree sets you apart, allowing you to focus on areas of interest, such as food safety, vector-borne diseases, conservation medicine, or animal health management.

What kinds of unique research opportunities are available?

Because of our location on the tropical island of St. Kitts, researchers are presented with a unique ecosystem and firsthand opportunities to explore exotic marine and wildlife. Be it working with sea turtles to public health of invasive species to the control and prevention of tropical disease, few schools offer an opportunity to pursue these areas of focus just steps from campus.

How does the Dual-Degree Program work?

Our DVM students may undertake research degrees alongside their DVM program. This can be done either full-time via an added semester (11 semesters total) or part-time through an extra three semesters (13 semesters total).


Aid Options

Student loans from governmental and other agencies, combining family resources and private sources are all typical ways students finance the cost of their veterinary school education. You can borrow for up to the per-semester cost of attendance.

Scholarship Options

Ross Vet offers a number of veterinary school scholarships you may apply for before beginning your first semester, as well as throughout your student career. New scholarships are added as we receive them, so check back frequently.
