High School applicants are seniors interested in our 0-6 Doctor of Pharmacy Program. Applicants should have successfully completed the following prerequisites:
- 4 units of English

Qualifying high school seniors applying to the undergraduate Pharmacy program are guaranteed a seat in our Doctor of Pharmacy program provided they meet academic milestones during their first two years of preprofessional studies. After completing two years of preprofessional study, students will be able to transition into the professional phase of their education, the PharmD, which entails an additional four years of study.
In the Pharmacy program, you are eligible to receive a bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy Studies after four years of study and the PharmD degree after six years.
