Program Planning

High School Preparation: While in high school, students should pursue all the available courses in mathematics, chemistry, biology, and physics.

Students should also gain exposure to the pharmacy profession through experience in a pharmacy setting and exploration of the pharmacy literature.

Recommended Class Schedule: Based on the individual transfer requirements for each of the 4-year institutions, we suggest specific class schedules.
