Pharmacy, PharmD Admission Process - Direct Entry Option

The direct entry option allows first-time students to seamlessly transition from high school into the PharmD program—becoming practice-ready pharmacists in a range of areas within as few as six years. As a first-time student, you’ll complete the entire Ready + 4 program—both the pre-professional and professional phases—and you won’t need to apply for the professional phase if you meet all requirements.
