Texas Tech Vet School Provisionally Accredited
The AVMA COE has granted a letter of reasonable assurance to the university's new vet school, officially allowing students to apply.


The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education (COE), the accreditor of veterinary medical programs, has granted a Letter of Reasonable Assurance to the Texas Tech University School of Veterinary Medicine. That means the school can officially accept veterinary student applications, which will occur through The Texas Medical and Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS), according to the university’s website.

“When we accept the first student, we will be placed on Provisional Accreditation status by the AVMA COE,” noted Texas Tech. “We will be accredited, albeit provisionally, at that point. We will remain on Provisional Accreditation until we are near graduating the first class in 2025, at which time we anticipate receiving Full Accreditation status based on AVMA COE evaluation. Students graduating from a school or college with provisional accreditation are afforded all the privileges of students from fully accredited programs.”
