Transfer Student Admission

Students transferring to the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences from another university within Ohio must have at least a 2.7 cumulative Higher Education (HiEd) GPA, although a cumulative Higher Education GPA of at least a 3.2 is highly recommended.

  • Students with course work from non-Ohio institutions will be evaluated on an individual basis. Such applicants with a GPA below a 3.0 are rarely considered for admission.
  • Recommended Application deadlines for transfer admission are May 1st for the fall and summer semesters and December 1st for spring semester.
  • Transfer FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) and online brochure provide additional information.

Programs of Study

There are two entry-level degree options available in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences:

All transfer students will enter the College of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences in the first or second year of the preprofessional division.  Transfer students are not automatically admitted into the professional division, regardless of credits earned at other institutions.

Transfer students can be admitted into either the first or second year of the preprofessional division, depending on the number of science-related courses already successfully completed. Transfer students can expect to matriculate for a minimum of three years for the BSPS degree or five years for the PharmD degree. Transfer students are considered second-year students if a full year of the appropriate general chemistry and biology courses (with all labs) have been taken. College faculty evaluates courses for equivalencies, and transfer students must submit syllabi for evaluation if they are requested.

Transfer students with a strong cumulative and science GPA are required to take a minimum of 16 graded semester hours at UT before being eligible to apply to the Professional Division. Functional Anatomy and Pathophysiology must be taken at UT, as the college does not accept transfer credits for these courses from other institutions.

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.
