Applying to the OVC-DVM program using credits from W20 semester?

Important information - April 9, 2020

In response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the Admissions Committee for the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), University of Guelph has discussed how ‘pass/fail’ credits will impact future applications to the DVM program.  The Admissions Committee would like to inform all internal and external prospective applicants of the following: 

  • Courses with a final grade of ‘pass’ cannot be presented as prerequisites and must be from an acceptable full-time (minimum 2.5 credit or 15 credit hours) semester (e.g. courses presented as prerequisites must have a numerical or alpha grade).
     
  • Winter 2020 will be considered a full-time semester so long as it contains a minimum of 2.5 credits or 15 credits hours and has numerical or alpha grades in a minimum of 1.5 credits or 9 credit hours (e.g. 'pass' grades in a maximum of 1.0 credits or 6 credit hours will be acceptable).
     
  • Winter 2020 will be considered one of the last 2 full-time semesters so long as it is a full-time (minimum 2.5 credits or 15 credit hours) acceptable semester and has numerical or alpha grades in a minimum of 1.5 credits or 9 credit hours (e.g. 'pass' grades in a maximum of 1.0 credit or 6 credit hours will be acceptable).  Any course(s) presented as a ‘pass’ grade will be excluded from the calculation of the cumulative admission average.
     
  • Any ‘pass’ course credits completed as part of a graduate program from the Winter 2020 semester will be excluded from the cumulative graduate program admission average.
