College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Transfer FAQ

How long are the College's degree programs?

The total length of the BSPS program is four years, and the length of the PharmD program is six years.

How much academic credit can I expect to receive?

  • One year towards the length of the program is the most credit that can be expected, and only if the proper courses have been taken.
  • The college only accepts transfer students into the first or second year of the pre-professional division. Transfer students will be considered second-year students if they have a full year of the appropriate general chemistry and biology, with all labs.  Our own faculty evaluates courses for equivalencies. Students will need to submit syllabi for evaluation, if requested.
  • All transfer students can expect to be here for a minimum of three years for the BSPS degree and five years for the PharmD degree, if credit is given for the first year.

When can I apply to the Professional Division? 

  • Transfer students with a strong cumulative and science GPA are required to take a minimum of 16 graded semester hours with us before being eligible to apply to the professional division. Functional Anatomy and Pathophysiology must be taken here at UT; we don’t accept it from anywhere else.

What is involved in applying for the Professional Division of the PharmD program?

All students apply to the professional division of the PharmD program through PharmCAS
