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 in six years. As a first-time student, you'll complete the entire program— both the pre-professional and professional phases—and you'll have your spot reserved for you throughout the entire program if you meet all the progression requirements.  The PCAT and GRE are also not required.

We are excited that you are interested in attending University of the Sciences!
