College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Professional Division Admission Criteria

Students apply to the professional division of the college’s BSPS and/or PharmD program upon completing the required pre-pharmacy division prerequisite coursework. Admission to the professional division is competitive. The prerequisite coursework for both programs is very similar.

The Bachelors in Pharmaceutical Sciences program has a capacity of 150 students in each class. The Doctor of Pharmacy program has a capacity of 108 students in each class. Approximately 250 students apply to the professional division each year.

Progression to the Professional Division - BSPS (non-PharmD track)

Students who have completed the required prerequisite coursework and have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher can be evaluated for progression to the professional division in a non-PharmD track BSPS major.

Students may declare a non-PharmD track BSPS major as early as the freshman year or until the end of the spring or summer semester of the second year by completing an online BSPS Progression Review Form. Questions? Email
