Application Review

VetCAMP applications are reviewed as they are received. Final decisions regarding acceptance will be sent in mid- to late-April via email to the student and parent/guardian emails provided in the application.

VetCAMP conducts a holistic review of all applications and does not make final decisions until after all applications have been received on April 5th. Applicants can expect final decisions to be sent to all invited, wait-listed, and declined participants after April 19th.

Typically, a maximum of 5 candidates per week are wait listed. In this case, we will contact you by late May in regards to a final decision.

Eligibility Criteria

In order to be eligible for this program, all of the following conditions must be met:

  • Student must be a rising high school sophomore, junior, or senior. Rising college freshman are also accepted.
  • The student must be 15 years old by June 1
  • The VetCAMP application must be completed and payment must be received by the deadline (see above).
  • Unofficial High School Transcripts must be emailed to vetpac_camp@ncsu.edu if they are not uploaded into the application at the time of completion. Applications without accurate transcripts received by the application deadline will be considered incomplete and be disqualified from the applicant pool.

Application Information

  • The VetCAMP application fee is $28.00 per week that the student applies to be considered for.
  • Students will complete one application and mark the weeks that they want to be considered for in the application. The application will calculate the payment accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Virtual VetCAMP is offered to ALL denied applicants for In-Person VetCAMP. If you apply for ANY week of In-Person VetCAMP, DO NOT  select the Virtual Week on your VetCAMP Application. ONLY select Virtual VetCAMP if you are ONLY applying for Virtual VetCAMP.
  • Please note that students can only be selected for 1 week of VetCAMP, but applicants that apply to more than 1 week have a greater chance of being accepted as they are applying to be considered for 1 of 80 spots (both weeks) as opposed to 1 of 40 spots (1 week).
  • Attending virtual VetCAMP does not disqualify students from attending future in-person VetCAMP sessions, and can strengthen future applications.

Application Tips:

  • All fields containing an asterisk must be completed and cannot be left blank.
  • The entire process can take upwards of 30-45 minutes to complete as you will be asked questions about your personal information, academic information, extracurricular information, and required to provide short essays.
  • The application uses a character limit that counts the total number of spaces, letters, numbers, and symbols. This is significantly shorter than a word limit.

Refund Policy

Application Fee
The VetCAMP application fee is nonrefundable.

Camp Fee
Campers invited to VetCAMP after the application deadline will receive an email invitation to VetCAMP along with the camp fee payment page link. VetCAMP camper fees can only be refunded within 15 days of payment. Once the cancellation deadline has passed, no refunds will be issued.
