Directed Clinical Practice Requirement
Students accepted into this program will be required to successfully complete Veterinary Work Experience/ clinically-based courses held in health care facilities. These facilities may require background checks, including fingerprinting, as a condition of placement at the clinic.
Refusal to submit to a background check, or failure to meet clearance criteria established by the health care facility, may prevent placement in the Veterinary Work Experience/clinically-based course and thus, it may not be possible to successfully complete the program.
Health care facilities also require adherence to strict standards of conduct. Facilities may refuse educational access to any person who does not adhere to the facility's standards of safety, health and ethical behavior. This may be cause for removal from the program.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university should complete courses required for the university major and the general education pattern required by that transfer institution. See the San Diego Mesa College catalog TRANSFER INFORMATION section. Additional courses may be required to meet university lower-division requirements.
Course requirements at the transfer institution are subject to change and may be verified by a counselor or by consulting the current university catalog. Many Baccalaureate in Arts degrees require third semester competency in a foreign language. Consult the current catalog of the transfer institution and consult with a counselor.
