Admission Policy and Deposit
Priority will be given to IAVM members during the open enrollment process from the day the online application goes live through Thursday, February 16, 2017. Applications received after February 16th will be placed on a waitlist.
Applicants are processed and accepted strictly on an individual basis. Facilities or companies may not send substitute registrants in the event an accepted applicant cannot attend unless approved by the VMS Executive Committee.
A non-refundable deposit of $200 will be required for all first year member applicants. Member applicants will receive an acceptance email with an invoice for $200 within 10 days of submitting an application. Deposit payments are due within 30 days of receipt of the invoice or the applicant’s admission will be cancelled and another eligible candidate will be accepted in the vacant position. Oglebay will notify students of their status and request full payment of tuition, room and board to be received no later than March 15th of the school year. If tuition, room and board is not received by Friday, March 13th, the student is removed from the roster and another candidate will be accepted in the vacant position.
A deposit of $200 will be required for all first year non-member applicants. Non-member applicants applying before Fridaday, February 17 will be placed on a waiting list. Applicants will receive a “waiting list” notification email along with an invoice to hold their respective waiting list position within 10 days of submitting an application. Deposit payments are due within 30 days of receipt of the invoice or the applicant will be removed from the waiting list.
On Friday, February 17, 2017, the Board of Regents will determine if there is sufficient room to accept non-members into the school. In the event a non-member is not admitted to the school, the applicant will be given the option of a refund or application of the deposit to the next year’s school. Non-member applicants rolling their deposit who are not granted admission due to space limitations will be granted first priority of the non-member waiting list in the next school year. Non-member applicants who request the return of their deposit will be removed from the waiting list and required to reapply in future years.
