Residents of Mississippi wishing to study veterinary medicine typically apply to the College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University. Current criteria for admission to that college are given in the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine publication, Academic Requirements for Application, which is available online at the MSU Web site. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of pre-veterinary academic preparation, as well as non-academic qualities.

The pre-vet curriculum satisfies minimal course requirements for admission to MSU's College of Veterinary Medicine; applicants to other schools should consult the appropriate admissions offices. Although students may apply in the third year of undergraduate study, they are strongly advised to work toward completing the baccalaureate degree in a science field. The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is also required. It is highly recommended that students acquire experience working in a veterinary clinic before applying to a vet school because one letter of recommendation must be from a veterinarian.
