Policy and Definitions

Transfer students are those who are currently, or have recently been, enrolled in a professional pharmacy program at an ACPE accredited school or college of pharmacy. Transfer students must be in good academic standing at the institutions they are currently attending.

Pacific University School of Pharmacy will consider transfer students for admittance into the program as a first-year student in the fall semester or second-year student in the summer semester. For admittance to advance standing, a meticulous review of all available information will be completed.

The School of Pharmacy will evaluate students who wish to transfer on a case by case basis, and will include a student interview. The application process is a three-step process in order to review prerequisites, credits from U.S. ACPE accredited PharmD program, and completion of incomplete prerequisites or pharmacy courses. Student prerequisites, course descriptions, and syllabi from the previous institution, hours completed, transcripts, and a completed admission application will be used in making a decision.
