Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy Degree Requirements

The degree Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy (B.S. in Pharm.) is conferred upon candidates who have fulfilled the requirements described in this bulletin. They are summarized as follows:

1.The completion of 169 semester hours of work.

2.The acquisition of 338 quality points or a grade point average of at least 2.0 on the point average scale of A = 4 points.

3.The completion of all work required by the standard program for Pharmacy students with such substitutions as may be approved by the dean of the college. The standard program may be revised at any time by faculty action. A student after five calendar years in the Professional Division may be required to retake courses and/or complete the course requirements consistent with the current College of Pharmacy bulletin.

4.Continuously enrolled students will be subject to the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy published in the Undergraduate Bulletin of the College of Pharmacy concurrent with their entry into the College of Pharmacy. Students without continuous enrollment, i.e., students who have been readmitted after an absence of an academic year (summers excluded), will be subject to the requirements concurrent with the semester during which they were readmitted to the college.

5.Schools of pharmacy arrange for educational tours to pharmaceutical and biological companies. The College of Pharmacy designates arranged tours each year and students are required to make the minimum of one tour as a requirement for graduation. This tour is required in the fourth year.

6.Student placement in college Experiential Rotations includes Cleveland and Toledo as well as other College approved sites. In order to accommodate all students in the fifth year Experiential Rotations, it is necessary to assign students during the Fall and Spring semesters. (Summer rotations are not available.) Each student is required to complete their Experiential Rotations at the assigned locations.
