Pre-Pharmacy Coursework


Applicants to the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy must complete all prerequisites with a grade of C or higher (C- or below is not acceptable) at a college or university that is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges or one of its regional affiliates. Applicants must complete all pre-pharmacy coursework by the end of the spring term prior to their first fall term in the School of Pharmacy. We can offer prerequisites extensions into the summer semester in certain circumstances. Please contact us at for more information. In many cases, applicants can be admitted while they are completing the course work in the spring semester but the number of courses in progress may affect the decision of the admissions committee should there not be sufficient course work to evaluate.
