Progression Into the Doctor of Pharmacy Program

Many of our students are pursuing degrees in pharmacy through our flagship Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program. The College offers two pathways to pursue a pharmacy education.
  • By integrating a Pharm.D. with a B.S. in Pharmaceutical Science, students earn an undergraduate and doctoral degree, while saving a full year of study. Students progress into the Pharm.D. program after completing junior-level requirements, and the first professional year fulfills the remaining requirements for the undergraduate program.
  • Students who do not wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree may complete their Pharm.D. prerequisites and apply for admission into the first professional (P1) year.
Students are admitted to the professional program through a holistic admissions process, which includes an interview and writing assessment, and students who complete more than two full-time semesters of undergraduate coursework at the College are not required to take the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).
