Students must apply to the professional division of the program (BSPS or PharmD) upon completing the required preprofessional division prerequisite coursework. Admission to the Professional Division is competitive. The prerequisite coursework for both programs is very similar. See pages 29 to 33 in the Student Handbook for the Professional Division Admission Criteria.
Applications for the Professional Division are evaluated based upon:
- An essay that will be submitted in the spring semester of the year students wish to begin in the professional division
- Cumulative and Science GPAs
- Historically, students entering the professional division carry a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher.
- Science GPA is calculated from the two general chemistry lecture grades, the first organic chemistry lecture grade, the two appropriate biology lecture grades, the first calculus grade, the first physics grade and the first functional anatomy and pathophysiology grade.
- Students may take the science courses a maximum of two times, and the college will use the better grade from the first two attempts to calculate the GPA. The grades will not be averaged.
- Two recommendations will be required.
- An interview
- Top students will be interviewed. The PharmD program currently has 108 seats available, and the BSPS program has 115seats available. An average of 225-250 students apply to the professional division each year.
- PCAT test score (beginning with the Fall 2014 admission to the PharmD professional division)
