Academic Calendar and Class Schedules
For students admitted to the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program, the first course, “Introduction to Pharmacy,” will begin around the second week of August. This is a seven-day required course that new students must successfully complete before continuing to the rest of the curriculum. Information and a course syllabus will be sent before the class begins. Failure to attend the first day of orientation without prior notice will result in the withdrawal of the offer of admission and that spot will be offered to a candidate on the waitlist.
All pre-pharmacy courses must be completed and official transcripts or grade reports must be submitted before students may register for or attend this course.
Immunization, CPR, Drug screen and Background Check
Adult, infant, child with AED for health care providers is required for all students enrolled in the School of Pharmacy and must be current throughout the program. Online courses are not accepted. If you have a question regarding the certification requirement, please contact Experiential Programs.
