4+3 Pre-Pharmacy Advantage Program
These pre-pharmacy applicants are admitted to any major at Pacific and pursue a Bachelor's degree, while also completing the pre-requisites for the Doctor of Pharmacy Program. If they complete their Bachelor's degree in four years (but no more than five years) they are eligible to advance into the PharmD Program if they have fulfilled all of the same pre-pharmacy advantage requirements. This option ensures that these students are on track from the beginning of their college careers to earn, at least, a Bachelor's degree.
Minimum criteria for consideration:
- High school GPA of 3.2 (on a 4.0 scale) and either a combined SAT Critical Reading and Math score of 1050 (with at least a 500 in Critical Reading and Math), or an ACT Composite of 22. Based on SAT scores prior to March 2016.
- Please note that the SAT Writing section score or ACT Writing Score may be used as part of our comprehensive admission review process, but no minimum score has been set.
- Please note that the SAT Subject Test in Math (either math test) and Subject Test in Chemistry are strongly recommended, but there are no minimum scores required for pre-pharmacy. The tests will only be used for placement purposes for students who enroll.
