*Students lacking any of these courses may be considered for admission on a conditional basis as they work to complete the course(s). However, it is strongly recommended that students complete the minimum requirements before applying for admission in order to prepare for the animal sciences coursework. Some entry-level courses offered through K-State Global Campus are accelerated courses. Principles of Biology is not offered online through K-State Global Campus at this time. Please note that missing entry-level coursework (many of which are prerequisite requirements) will prevent you from enrolling in animal science courses.
The online animal sciences and industry bachelor's program, as well as online science courses, are not suitable for those seeking a pre-vet program. Students interested in a pre-vet curriculum should apply to an on-campus program with a pre-vet option. Students should regularly review the admission and prerequisite requirements of the college(s) of veterinary medicine to which they wish to apply.
Online science courses are often not accepted to veterinary professional programs.
