Applying for Admission

Application for LBCC's Veterinary Assistant program opens once per year in early November. In order to apply, applicants must submit all noted documentation in the Program Bulletin. All qualified candidates will be considered on a first-come-first-serve basis, with priority given to residents of LBCC's tax district for the first week that applications are open.

Application to this program is a two-step process: online and in-person. The online process serves to reserve your spot in line for the program, while you turn in a packet of information in-person to complete the requirements.
