The Doctor of Pharmacy program at The University of Toledo has traditionally had a 2+4 structure in which students complete two years of pre-professional division prerequisite coursework before entering the professional division; however, there are several paths to the professional division. Admission to the professional division is competitive, and applications are submitted and processed through PharmCAS

P1 Class Profiles provide statistical information on admission to the professional division.



The University of Toledo requires specific completion of college preparatory curriculum course work for admission consideration.  The minimum academic core requirements are:

  • 4 years of English
  • 3 years of math (Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry)
  • 3 years of natural sciences
  • 3 years of social science

To be admitted into the pre-professional division of the program, students must meet the following requirements:

  • 2.5 GPA or GED or 20 ACT/950 SAT

Students not meeting these requirements will be admitted to the Department of Exploratory Studies in the College of Languages, Literature and Social Sciences.


UT offers an early admission program called Contingent Admission, a competitive process that grants admission to the professional division to academically exceptional students during the senior year of high school. Contingent Admission secures a seat in the professional division, without additional application, for students who meet the qualifications. Read the Contingent Admission Policy for information on how to qualify for Contingent Admission.


Transfer students can expect to matriculate for a minimum of five years for the PharmD degree. College faculty evaluates courses for equivalencies, and transfer students must submit syllabi for evaluation if they are requested. More about transferring into the college


Pharmacy Summer Camps are a great way for rising high school juniors to learn more about pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences while experiencing UT.
