Acceptance into a pharmacy degree program is by a competitive application process. Only complete applications will be considered by the Admissions Committee.
Applicants must complete a minimum of 33 Credit-Hours (CrH) of Pre-Pharmacy courses (see Academic Degree Programs) prior to entering the major program. Pre-Pharmacy courses may be completed at any accredited university or college. Recent and official Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) scores must be submitted by all applicants.
Students must complete all mandatory prerequisite courses and official transcripts must be received by July 1st of the year in which they enroll. Students are strongly encouraged to carry full course loads during their Pre-Pharmacy year(s).
Applicants will typically have completed the QU Foundation Program and the required Pre-Pharmacy courses prior to application. For external applicants, the quality of the academic institution as well as rigor of the academic curriculum is also considered.
QU students who intend to pursue a career in pharmacy are strongly encouraged to consider enrolment in the QU Honors Program prior to their application. As described on their website, the Honors program has been designed for highly motivated and academically inquisitive students looking for an enriching college experience. If you meet their admission requirements, they welcome your application. Acceptance into the QU Honors Program strengthens an application to our pharmacy degree program.
Qualified applicants to the College of Pharmacy will be invited for a formal interview involving the Admissions Committee. All interviews are expected to be conducted during the month of May. The selection process is described elsewhere on this website.
