The cost of obtaining a veterinary degree can be substantial. Typically, students must complete about three to four years of undergraduate classes before being qualified to apply to a veterinary school. If accepted, veterinary school will involve another four years of education before one receives a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, or DVM (D-V-M) degree. In addition to the costs of tuition, you may have other expenses, such as housing, food, and textbooks. All of these expenses should be estimated and weighed before making a decision to enter a pre-veterinary program. Another influencing factor is whether you can attend a veterinary school in your home state, or whether you must go to another state. Tuition for out-of-state residents is usually much higher. Depending on the school and your residency status, you can expect to pay around $6,000 (six thousand) to $30,000 (thirty thousand dollars) per year. However, some states may have college assistance programs that will contribute money towards your tuition. You may also be able to obtain various student loans, scholarships, and state or federal financial aid packages. However, be sure to consider how much debt you'll have upon graduation versus the salary you can expect to earn, and how long it will take to repay any loans.
