IV. Degree Regulations
Doctor of Veterinary Science
The normal basis for admission to DVSc studies as a regular or a provisional student is a DVM or equivalent degree which would allow the applicant to be eligible for licence to practice veterinary medicine in Ontario. The applicant must have achieved high academic standing as set out in the Admission Requirements. If a student enrolled in the graduate diploma program achieves a superior record and shows a particular aptitude for applied studies, the Board of Graduate Studies, on recommendation of the Interdepartmental DVSc Program Committee may authorize transfer to the DVSc program effective in the following semester. The recommendation must be made no later than the end of the second semester.
An alternative basis for admission is a DVM or equivalent degree plus either an acceptable graduate diploma or an acceptable MSc degree or PhD degree, with upper ‘B' level average standing. Students so admitted may be granted credit for two semesters in the DVSc program.
