SGU students in the Foundation to Veterinary Medicine Program are not permitted to drop or add courses. The average student academic load is 17 credit hours for the one-term program.
Foundation to Veterinary Medicine students are expected to maintain a full-time schedule for the term. The program’s curriculum is specifically designed to prepare students for entry into the School of Veterinary Medicine. As a consequence, FTV students must attempt this curriculum as prescribed, and are expected to maintain a full-time schedule.
A Leave of Absence (LOA) is not permitted in the FTV Program. If a student must leave, for whatever reason, he or she will only have the option to withdraw. In this case, the University will refund the student’s tuition.
In the event of a serious health related or personal issue that impacted a student’s ability to study and focus on his/her curriculum, the Director of the Foundation to Veterinary Medicine Program, in conjunction with the Dean of Students, may request that the student be readmitted.
