Option Pre-Pharmacy Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
BioHealth Sciences - College of Science



The Pre-Pharmacy/BioHealth Sciences option is designed to meet most or all of the requirements for admission to pharmacy schools across the U.S., including OSU’s Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) professional program. Satisfactory completion of the pre-pharmacy option 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 current requirements.

Students may not combine the Pre-Pharmacy/BioHealth Sciences option with any other option offered with the BioHealth Sciences major (Pre-Medicine/Pre-Podiatry, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Clinical Laboratory Science, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Physical Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant).
