Overview of Program
Pharmacy is not an undergraduate major available at SUU. Students intending a career in pharmacy complete two years of preparatory work at SUU and then transfer to a pharmacy program.
The pharmacy degree requires general education courses which can be completed at SUU.
Our programs provide the curriculum, support, and guidance to ensure that students interested in Pre-Health Science careers are well positioned for acceptance into their chosen post-baccalaureate healthcare programs. Many of our students have gained admission to top schools by completing the required prerequisites while pursuing their chosen undergraduate degrees at SUU. The Walter Maxwell Gibson College of Sciences academic and faculty advisors work closely with students to chart the ideal academic program for their success.
- Hypothesis-based undergraduate research involvement is highly recommended before applying to post-graduate programs.
- The Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) is required. Applications must be completed before mid-June of the year of admission to pharmacy school.
Something to Consider
Many students either find themselves waiting a year for graduate/professional school acceptance, or recognize that a graduate-level credential would improve their career preparation. The MBA program in the SUU Dixie L. Leavitt School of Business welcomes applicants with undergraduate degrees in any program. There are admission requirements, but they are minimal and relatively low cost.
