Admission Criteria

All Pre-Pharmacy requirements must be completed prior to entry into the program (the courses PHRM 10000 and PHRM 20000 are waived for students who did not attend Purdue’s West Lafayette campus when doing their pre-pharmacy program). Students may complete these requirements at other colleges and universities, and international transfer credit is accepted.

Because of the integrated nature of the curriculum, it is not possible to be admitted to the professional program with advanced standing beyond the beginning of the first professional year.
