Two years of college work (60 transferable hours, including the courses listed below) are required for admission to a professional school of pharmacy. Some schools have additional required or recommended courses.
Programs in pharmacy require two to four additional years of study after acceptance into the program. Clinical experience is required for some, especially doctoral programs. These are minimal requirements. To be competitive for some pharmacy programs, students may need to complete a bachelors program. It is strongly advised that students contact pharmacy schools directly to determine whether additional coursework and PCAT exam scores are required.
