By following the curricula outlined you can earn an Associate in Science (AS) or Associate in Arts (AA) degree before transferring; however, this is not a two-year Vet-Tech degree. It is important to identify an appropriate major early in your college career. There are several reasons for committing to a degree-granting program. Once a major is decided, the degree plan for that degree should be followed. Although the pre-veterinary medicine requirements can be met in three years, many veterinary colleges give extra consideration for a degree when you apply.
