Doctor of Pharmacy

About the Admissions Process:

Prospective students must earn prerequisite credits prior to entering our Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. These credits can be completed at any two- or four-year accredited institution.

The admissions committee -- comprised of faculty members, students, and staff -- reviews official transcripts, letters of recommendation, work experience, extracurricular activities, and Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) results to make admissions decisions.

The committee then invites selected applicants to an interview with faculty members, alumni, and students. During the interview, the applicant is assessed on factors such as problem-solving ability, professional and social awareness, verbal and written communication skills, integrity, and motivation for pursuing a pharmacy career.

Following the interview, the admissions committee makes a decision based on the applicant's academic credentials, qualities evaluated during the interview, and overall application.
