How to Apply to the Pharm.D. Program for Transfer Students
Rolling Admissions Process:
The School of Pharmacy is now using a rolling admissions process. This means there is a large window of time to apply for admission, but it is to your advantage to plan ahead and apply early because admission into the program is very competitive and scholarship opportunities are limited.

Transfer Students Applying to the Professional Program
Students may complete the prerequisite courses at another institution, transfer into the professional program and complete four years of study leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The content and comprehensiveness of the prerequisite courses must be comparable to the pre-pharmacy courses offered at Hampton University.
To be considered for admission, a transfer student must have a minimum overall GPA of 2.75, a recent PCAT (within the last 24 months) with a minimum preferred composite percentile score of 50 or higher, an on-site interview and a high degree of professionalism are required for admission to the professional school. Students following academic tracks other than pre-pharmacy at Hampton University may also apply to the Pharm.D. program, provided they meet the requirements for submitting an application.
Once accepted into the School of Pharmacy, students must successfully complete the professional program to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. The Pharm.D. degree is not a graduate degree, but is a professional degree, and is the only degree which will allow the graduate to become a licensed, practicing pharmacist. Students may not sit for the pharmacy licensing examination until they complete the full four-year professional curriculum and earn a Pharm.D. degree.
To apply complete the following steps:
- Complete the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) and obtain a preferred minimum composite percentile rank of 50 or higher
- Submit the required HU Undergraduate Application (this is required of all transfer students) and a $50.00 application fee by cashier's check or money order.
