SUNY Cobleskill Formally Signs Articulation Agreements with Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and Ross University School of Medicine

SUNY Cobleskill is pleased to announce the establishment of two separate articulation agreements with Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) and Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM). A formal signing celebration was held on October 9, 2014 where Dr. Debra H. Thatcher, Acting President of SUNY Cobleskill and Alicia L. Foster, Associate Director of Admissions for RUSVM and RUSM, signed both articulation agreements, which will provide educational advancement opportunities for SUNY Cobleskill students seeking a career in the fields of medicine or veterinary medicine.

“At the core of these agreements is a common desire to give students seamless access to education paths that lead to their career aspirations,” remarks Alicia L. Foster. “I am delighted to have played a role in establishing this initiative and look forward to working with the SUNY Cobleskill administration to provide a pathway to Ross University School of Medicine and Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.”

SUNY Cobleskill students who wish to matriculate at one of the Ross schools will have special opportunities, provided they meet certain academic criteria, such as having their application to the school of their choice waived, having a guarantee of receiving an admissions interview, and priority consideration for scholarships for which they qualify. Each school will hold five open seats in each semester class for eligible applicants from SUNY Cobleskill until 30 days prior to the start of the semester.

Dr. Lynda McMaster – Schuyler, Professor of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, remarks, “I am so happy we have signed this agreement with Ross University School of Medicine. This will increase opportunities we need for our students to go to medical school, and with the increased demand for people in the medical and health professions, we are going to be meeting the demand at SUNY Cobleskill.”

Lynn Geoffroy, DVM, Assistant Professor of Animal Science at SUNY Cobleskill, said, “Acceptance into veterinary school proves to be a challenging endeavor for students at every university. The agreement between Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and SUNY Cobleskill presents our students with a competitive advantage in attainment of a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree.”
