University of Calgary Calendar 2016-2017 Faculty of Veterinary Medicine 3. Faculty Regulations 3.2 Registration
3.2 Registration

Successful applicants are required to have or receive immunization for tetanus and rabies following admission.

Accuracy of Registration

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine will directly register successful applicants and ongoing students into all required yearly courses. Payment of fees is the student's responsibility through the Online Student Centre via MyUofC web portal. For more information refer to B.15 Payment of Fees or Notification of Financial Assistance in the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar.


Students wishing to apply for deferral should make this request in a letter to the Dean, care of the UCVM Admissions Office within 15 days of the date at the top of their acceptance letter. Requests for deferred admission will only be considered for applicants who have accepted the offer of admission and paid the $500.00 acceptance fee. The applicant must clearly explain the reason for the deferral request. Deferrals will be considered for academic and/or non-academic reasons, including completion of degrees. Deferral requests for attending other veterinary schools will not be accepted. It is at the sole discretion of the Dean to grant or deny a deferral. Deferrals will normally be for one year only.

Interruption of Program Leading to a Degree

Students who voluntarily withdraw from the DVM program and who wish to return must re-apply to the program through the Admissions Office if they withdrew from first year, or for advanced standing through the Associate Dean (Academic) if they withdrew from second-fourth year. Students contemplating a withdrawal from the program are cautioned that there is an enrolment limitation for the program and that re-entry will be conditional on the availability of space and on academic performance.
