On Your Way

Congratulations! Students who are accepted to St. Louis College of Pharmacy have been chosen from a large pool of bright and promising applicants. This competitive process allows for the admission of approximately 250 students into the first-year class chosen from among hundreds of applicants nationwide. Acceptance is a mark of your academic success, motivation, and leadership potential. You will be joining a diverse group of classmates who recognize the importance of the pharmacy profession to the future of health care and are ready to seize the opportunity to learn and grow through our dynamic seven-year Pharm.D. program.

  • Remember, this is a direct-entry program, which means you will earn a Bachelor of Science degree in four years and then continue on for three years of professional pharmacy education. No additional applications or entrance exams are needed. Completion of the academic program results in a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree.
  • In addition to choosing a college for academic excellence, consider the benefits of campus life at STLCOP. Our students gain practical experience through service projects and volunteer opportunities, enjoy campus clubs and athletics, and explore the greater St. Louis area.

Get Oriented

New Student Orientation is central to your transition from high school to St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Through this fun and informative program, you’ll be able to prepare yourself to begin the Pharm.D. academic program. All new students are required to attend one of our orientation sessions in order to register for classes, get a student ID, learn more about the curriculum, become familiar with campus, and get to know classmates.

A pair of Orientation leaders talk to a group of first year students.

To register for classes during New Student Orientation, you must have a completed STLCOP Health Form signed by your primary-care physician and documentation of previous college classes for credit.

You will be receiving more information on how to register for orientation along with details about the program. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Maryam Ouechani, administrative assistant for student affairs, at 314.367.8700, ext. 8900, or via email at maryam.ouechani@stlcop.edu.
