Budget cuts threaten Auburn-Kentucky veterinary program - Emmy Leberte, Auburn Plainsman

Since 1951 Auburn University’s School of Veterinary Medicine has offered in-state tuition to a handful of Kentucky students, but after budget cuts in Kentucky the program faces uncertainty. The program is a contract with the Kentucky Council of Post-Secondary Education and the Southern Regional Education Board. It offers 36 students in-state tuition with the difference paid by Kentucky. “Since Kentucky does not have a college of veterinary medicine, Kentucky currently contracts for 36 entering spaces — 34 at Auburn University and two at Tuskegee University,” according to the Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education's website. After the Kentucky Legislature decided to make the budget cuts, Auburn could only guarantee in-state tuition to 22 of the 38 students from Kentucky who applied.
