Tuition and Fees

Investing in your future

Vet school is an investment. But it’s so worth it.  Compared to other vet schools, UGA is a value. We are the third least expensive of all U.S. vet schools in cost to attend. And UGA overall consistently appears on the U.S. News list of best values in public education.

Cost of Veterinary School

The estimated cost of attendance is outlined below. While these figures are based on the expenses of a typical student, your individual spending habits will determine your actual expenses. The estimated cost of attendance is higher for third year students because of the continuous year of clinical training. Students attend nine semesters during the four-year DVM program. The most current rates for tuition and fees can be found on the UGA Bursar & Treasury Services website.
