Program Overview:

The Pre-Pharmacy program is designed to meet the most common lower-division admissions requirements for professional pharmacy schools. Students should consult with their intended transfer institutions early in their studies. The program does not offer any pharmacy or pharmacological courses, but provides a strong foundation in chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics. Students completing the program requirements are granted an A.S. degree and may apply to a College of Pharmacy at the institution(s) of their choice or pursue further studies at a four-year institution.  

Students will also complete the General Education Core Certification process and be equipped to be self-motivated life-long learners capable of independent critical thinking.   Some Pharm D. programs require specific General Education courses, most frequently microeconomics, ethics, and psychology.  Students should consult admissions requirements at the institutions to which they intend to apply to insure that they complete all necessary coursework.
