General Science - College of Science



Alex Aljets, Chief Advisor

The College of Science offers a preparatory program designed to meet most requirements for admission to pharmacy schools across the U.S., including OSU’s Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) professional program. Students who complete the four-year pre-pharmacy program earn a BS degree in General Science with a Pre-Pharmacy option. Satisfactory completion of the pre-pharmacy course work facilitates, but does not guarantee, admission to pharmacy school; applicants are selected on a competitive basis. Students are urged to carefully check admission requirements at their schools of interest and work closely with admission representatives in order to make sure they are meeting all requirements.
