Programs of Study

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

Transfer students can enter the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences as Pre-Pharmacy students.  Transfer students who are interested in one of the BSPS majors and who have met the necessary pre-requisite course requirements, can apply to enter the junior year of one of the BSPS majors if they have earned a 2.7 cumulative GPA.  Additionally, students who are interested in applying to the professional division of the PharmD program and who have met the necessary pre-requisite coursework, can apply directly through PharmCAS.   

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 two years for the BSPS degree or four years for the PharmD degree.
