College of Veterinary Medicine

Veterinary Biomedical Sciences Master's Degree Program

Admission Requirements

The Veterinary Biomedical Science graduate program is largely research based. Because of this, it is important that each graduate student identify a major professor who agrees to offer lab space, provide funding, and oversee all research while in the program. Once the student has been accepted by a graduate faculty mentor, the student should apply online through the Graduate School

Applicants should be prepared to upload/provide the following items:

  • Statement of Objectives
  • Official transcripts of all college coursework completed
  • GRE scores
  • Three references for letters of recommendation

International applicants must also submit the following:

  • TOEFL scores
  • Affidavit of Financial Support form

While prospective students may complete an application without a major professor, applications will not advance to the approval stage until the applicant has identified, contacted, and been accepted by a graduate faculty member within one of the three discipline areas: 

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis and admission will follow deadlines set forth by the Kansas State University Graduate School. More information about the graduate application and admission process is available here.
