About This Program
At this time, Mt. San Antonio College’s Registered Veterinary Technology Program is experiencing increased demand across all class levels. Due to this impaction and new standards set forth by the AVMA regarding class size and instructor-to-student ratios, be advised that we may not be able to accommodate you in obtaining the classes that you need or want to take. Please keep this in mind when applying to an impacted program.
The program can be completed in two years (including both summer and winter sessions), but most students take longer to complete the program. Coursework transfers to Cal Poly Pomona, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and other 4-year universities. Day and evening classes make our program accommodating to working students.
The Registered Veterinary Technology Program is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
