    Pharm D. Pharmacy Pre-Requisites Checklist

    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.

    Please complete the checklist 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 leave that line blank and the admission staff will complete it for you.

    If no agreement for your school is posted, please send the entire department course descriptions for Calculus, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Microbiology, English and Public Speaking along
    with the completed checklist. Please send only the course descriptions (not the whole department) for Economics, Psychology, and GE

    (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.)
