Under a regional plan, the South Carolina Preveterinary Advisory Committee coordinates a program for South Carolina residents who are interested in pursuing careers in veterinary medicine. South Carolina residents attending any college or university may apply through the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS) to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Currently the University of Georgia admits up to 17 students each year through arrangements with the Southern Regional Education Board. South Carolina has a contract with Mississippi State University to admit up to five South Carolina residents. The State of South Carolina also has a contract with Tuskegee University to admit up to four South Carolina residents. Application must be made directly to Tuskegee University.
