KSU–NCHU PreVet & DVM Program
堪萨斯州立大学 – 国立中兴大学兽医预科及博士项目

The Kansas State University (KSU), through its College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and National Chung – Hsing University (NCHU) in Taichung has signed the Agreement of Cooperative Degree in February, 2017. Students at NCHU who have studied for at least two years will be selected to study the pre-veterinary medicine at KSU for 1-2 years to meet KSU DVM prerequisites and apply for the KSU DVM program during the last year of their pre-veterinary study at KSU.  Students must maintain a minimum cumulative 3.5 GPA during completion of their pre-veterinary requirement at KSU.

If students successfully fulfill the requirements of the DVM at both universities, students will be granted DVM degrees by both NCHU and KSU.  Students will be required to complete no less than one third of the total graduation credits at NCHU to get a DVM degree from NCHU. Students will need to fulfill all necessary credits, standards, and other requirements, as any other KSU DVM student, in order to obtain a DVM degree from KSU.

Individual students will be responsible for expenses of out-of-state tuition, fees, books, supplies, travel, recreational activities, personal expenses and living expenses during study at KSU. Students will be required to purchase student health insurance (available through KSU) as well as any medical expenses incurred that are not covered by health insurance.

Students from NCHU first apply for the one year pre-vet program at KSU.  While studying at KSU during the pre-vet year, students will apply for a DVM program at KSU.
