Preparing for a career in pharmacy, while still in high school, means taking a well rounded series of classes with an emphasis on sciences, math, and communication. Good grades are important at the high school level, as an excellent grade point average is required. A competitive level of performance on the SAT and/or ACT is expected. Qualified high school students are admitted into the preprofessional phase of the Pharm.D. program of study.

Progression from the preprofessional phase to the professional phase will be contingent upon the successful completion of all preprofessional coursework and a competitive School of Pharmacy-based application process that will consider factors such as, but not limited to: cumulative QPA, scores attained on the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT), community service projects and an interview with the selection committee. The School of Pharmacy will conduct this selection process during the fall semester of the second preprofessional year.
