    Pharm D. Pharmacy Pre-Requisites Checklist

    Prerequisite Checklist Form

    The checklist for Fall 2018 term can be downloaded here: Prerequisite Checklist

     You can download a sample checklist for your reference.

    The Pre-Requisites Checklist is used to determine if all pre-requisite requirements for the professional pharmacy program have been met. This is a required part of the Supplemental Application and should be uploaded in in the PharmCAS application.

    Please complete the form by listing the pre-requisite courses you have completed or plan to complete which fulfill our pre-requisites. To determine if a course you have taken is equivalent, please use our list of Articulation Agreements /Course Equivalencies of over 200 select colleges and universities . If you are unsure whether a course fulfills a requirement, please list the course and the admission staff will evaluate it for you when your pre-requisite checklist is performed.

    (Please do not call the admission office to determine if you have met all requirements. We will notify you in writing if you are missing a requirement.)

    Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Checklist:

    1. If the lab is included with the lecture, how do I reflect that?

    2. What if I repeated a course at a different institution?

     Please list all the course information for first time you completed the course.  Then list the repeated grade in the box provided. The Admission Office staff will locate the repeated course information when we review your application.
