It is recommended that Pre-Pharmacy students research the requirements at the various Pharmacy schools and see a Pre-Professional advisor with specific questions regarding the different entrance pathways. The Pre-Pharmacy requirements at most Pharmacy schools may be completed in two to three years. Many students elect to apply to Pharmacy school after completing three years of prerequisite coursework in order to improve their science background, maturity and competitiveness. Others complete a Bachelor’s degree before matriculating to Pharmacy school. Students with an interest in chemistry may elect to follow the first three years of coursework towards the Applied Chemistry major and earn a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Chemistry from TTU after completing their first year of Pharmacy school.
Entrance into a Doctor of Pharmacy program is competitive and is not guaranteed solely by completing the prerequisite coursework outlined below.
