Coursework from other nontraditional doctor of pharmacy programs will be considered on a case-by-case review basis by NTPD faculty. The NTPD Program will award no more than twelve (12) transferable credit hours per student.
In order to assure similar curricular standards, students wishing to transfer credit will provide to the DDP office the name of the course from the original institution to be considered for transfer, as well as the name of the NTPD course for which they are seeking credit. It is in the student’s best interest, and their responsibility, to provide as much documentation of course content as possible. In addition, the student will provide the following information for each considered original course:
- Course syllabus
- Course content information
- General program information of originating school
- Academic standards for the originating program
- Letter of Intent
In addition to the coursework information, students wishing to transfer coursework must meet the same academic and professional standards as those students currently in the NTPD Program. Therefore:
- An official transcript from the originating program must be provided.
- Students must be in good academic standing and have a professional GPA of at least 2.0.
- Each course considered for transfer credit must have a letter grade of C (73%) or higher (does NOT include C minus).
- Any coursework considered for transfer credit must be no more than 3 years old.
Students must also provide a completed application form along with a transfer evaluation fee of $250 per course requested for transfer, up to four courses (max of $1000). Students will provide a transfer evaluation fee of $50 per course if the student wishes to transfer more than four courses. Students must submit the total transfer evaluation fee in order for their coursework to be reviewed. All transfer evaluation fees are non-refundable, even if the NTPD Program deems the coursework non-transferable.
