Release Statement

In this section, applicants must review and respond to the following release statements in order to submit the application. Once the application has been submitted, it cannot be edited. It is your responsibility to read and understand all documentation before responding. Please review these instructions and the content of the statements carefully. If you have any questions regarding these statements, please contact customer service for clarification BEFORE making your selections.

Pre-Submission Release of Information

By answering Yes, you authorize VMCAS to release your name and contact information to your designated programs BEFORE you submit your final application. This will allow your designated programs to send you important information about the local admissions process before submitting your application.

Application Certification

This statement serves as a contractual agreement between you and VMCAS. You are required to agree to these terms in order to submit your VMCAS application. Part of these terms indicate that you agree to all of the VMCAS Instructions and FAQ’s, so it is important that you have read and understand these instructions.

Final Reminders

Indicate that you agree to the reminders and responsibilities listed.

Advisor Release

Selecting “Yes” allows VMCAS to release certain information to pre-health advisors at schools you have previously attended. This information includes application information, including the names of the veterinary programs to which you have applied and which program, if any, you matriculate into.

If you select “No” VMCAS will still release certain application data to the advisors, but we will not include your name.

This is an optional release, and you may select no if you should choose. We encourage you to authorize this release, as it is useful to advisors assisting you and other future applicants with the application process. However, it will not affect the consideration given to your application.
