Students may apply for admission into the pre-pharmacy program directly from high school or transfer from another 2 or 4-year college and must complete a minimum of 79 hours of prerequisite coursework. Applicants who meet the requirements for undergraduate admission to the University are eligible to be included in the School of Pharmacy's pre-professional program once you declare pre-pharmacy as your major.

Pre-pharmacy majors are assigned an advisor within the School of Pharmacy who assists them in preparation for entrance into the professional program. Each pre-pharmacy student must apply for a seat in the professional program.
A preferred minimum composite percentile rank of 50 or higher on the PCAT and a minimum overall GPA of 2.75 are required to be considered for an interview to progress from the pre-pharmacy program into the professional level.
