Applicants with Previous Degrees

Increasingly, applicants have completed a substantial amount of coursework in excess of the minimum pre-pharmacy requirements, often culminating in bachelor's or advanced degrees. Candidates who have completed more than the minimum coursework may be more competitive; however, a previous degree is not the sole criterion used in selecting candidates for admission. Applicants must have a competitive GPA regardless of the number of hours completed prior to application. In addition, completion of a previous degree does not exempt a student from any of the prerequisites.

We do not offer advanced standing, regardless of an applicant’s academic background, degrees earned or prior training. Students must complete the entire four-year program. No credit from any other pharmacy programs (U.S. or non-U.S.) can apply toward fulfilling the degree requirements.
