Hands On Experience/OCCI Information

In order for students to register in level 2-4 classes (with a few exceptions) students must work a minimum of 10 hours per week in an approved veterinary facility. In order for a clinic to be approved students must submit documentation and photos for non-AAHA facilities, and the documents with proof of accreditation in lieu of photos for any facility that is AAHA accredited.

American Animal Hospital Association logoStudents must complete an OCCI packet at least six weeks before the start of the semester in which they plan on registering for upper level courses. The approval process can take upwards of 4-6 weeks (longer during peak times) once the packet has been submitted so please start the process early. Once approved you will be emailed an approval letter with an OCCI number which you will need to register.
