PRE-PHARMACY

 
 

Transfer to four year PharmD programs can be done as early as after the sophomore year; but is becoming more common to complete the B.S. degree before entering pharmacy school. The following list of courses is designed to satisfy the admissions requirements at the Albany College of Pharmacy (Albany and Vermont branches), SUNY-Buffalo School of Pharmacy, Wegman College of Pharmacy, and the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy; but this list will satisfy the course requirements at most pharmacy schools. You should check the specific course requirements at the schools where you are planning to apply.
