Veterinary Education Tools

The interactive VIN Foundation Cost of Education Map compares the tuition and total cost of attendance (tuition plus estimates of living expenses) among U.S. and Caribbean veterinary schools derived from data on school websites supplemented by input from the students attending the schools. Regional veterinary salary ranges are as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Details provided for each U.S. and Caribbean veterinary school include: in-state tuition, out-of-state tuition, cost-of-living, NAVLE pass rate, and changes in tuition over the past decade.

The Student Loan Repayment Simulator is a tool that can be used to illustrate the potential impacts of life choices based upon your veterinary school loans. Please note that this tool is simply a simulator and not a financial advisor or calculator.

The "I Want to Be a Veterinarian" application discusses: what veterinarians do, is veterinary medicine the right choice, how long you have to go to school, and much more.
