October 22, 2009 (NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ) - Officials from Ross University and SUNY Cobleskill have announced a new articulation agreement that will allow SUNY Cobleskill students who meet specific requirements to be automatically accepted into Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.

“We’re a very student-oriented campus,” said Lynda McMaster-Schuyler, PhD, a professor in the department of natural sciences at SUNY Cobleskill. “Our main goal is teaching, which is Ross’s main goal as well. Having taken a good look at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine I thought this was a very good opportunity for our students.”

“At Ross, we are very excited to add SUNY Cobleskill as an institutional partner. Their students are well prepared to succeed in our veterinary program and this agreement streamlines the admissions process for qualified individuals,” said Sean Powers, director of admissions for Ross University.

SUNY Cobleskill students who wish to be guaranteed acceptance into Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine must follow the course sequence outlined in the agreement, maintain a 3.25 grade point average, complete 200 hours of clinical time with a licensed veterinarian, and meet the specified graduate record examination requirements.

“The students are excited about the agreement,” Dr. McMaster-Schuyler said. “Over the years, several of our students have gone on to graduate from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine who are successfully practicing today, so we were already familiar with the caliber of Ross alumni. I’m hoping we will have quite a few students who will be able to take advantage of this opportunity.”
