Hands on Experience and OCCI
In order to complete the hands on or lab portion of many courses, students must either intern or work 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.
Students 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.
