Pre-Pharmacy Advising Program

COLLEGE: College of Arts and Sciences

DEPARTMENT: 105 Bowman Hall
Tel: 330-672-2062

DESCRIPTION: Pre-Pharmacy, a pre-professional advising program, provides students with an opportunity to prepare for further training in pharmacy schools or colleges. Students work closely with their pre-pharmacy faculty advisor to ensure they meet the admissions requirements for the pharmacy school or college of their choice. (Admissions requirements for pharmacy schools and colleges vary greatly.)  In addition to declaring this program, students must be admitted to a bachelor's degree program in the College of Arts and Sciences. 

Admissions requirements for pharmacy schools and colleges vary greatly.

General Admissions for Freshman Students: Students most likely to be admitted and succeed at the Kent Campus are those who have graduated with at least 16 units of the recommended college preparatory curriculum in high school, who have achieved a cumulative high school grade point average of 2.5 or higher (on a 4.0 scale), and whose composite ACT score is 21 or better (980 combined critical reading and math SAT score). For more information on admissions, visit the Admissions website for new freshmen.

General Admissions for Transfer Students: Generally, a transfer applicant who has taken 12 or more semester hours with a college cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale may be admitted. An applicant who has taken fewer than 12 semester hours will be evaluated on both collegiate and high school records. For more information on admissions, visit the Admissions website for transfer students.

It is imperative that students interested in the Pre-Pharmacy Advising Program meet with the University Pre-Pharmacy advisor immediately upon entering Kent State University. This allows student to most efficiently meet the requirements for admission to a number of pharmacy schools. These schools typically require coursework totaling 60-62 credit hours, which can be completed in two years. However, the coursework may vary based on the requirements of different pharmacy schools.

STUDY ABROAD/AWAY OPPORTUNITIES: There are many Study Abroad/Away Opportunities, for more information contact the Office of Global Education.
