Veterinary Science Technology Program:
Technical Standards for Admission, Progression, and Graduation

Technical standards describe the non-academic qualifications required for entrance to, continuation in, and graduation from the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program in Veterinary Science Technology at SUNY Delhi. Candidates must be able to meet these minimum standards, with or without reasonable accommodation, for successful completion of degree requirements.

SUNY Delhi has established these technical standards in an effort to provide a framework to balance several competing interests: (1) the rights of applicants and students; (2) the safety of students, staff, and veterinary patients; (3) the significant clinical training component of SUNY Delhi curricula; (4) the requirement imposed upon SUNY Delhi for accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association; and (5) the conditions for licensure of SUNY Delhi graduates. These competing interests and the nature of veterinary technician educational activities may prevent some prospective students from enrollment or continued enrollment in the Veterinary Science program at SUNY Delhi.
