Pre-Pharmacy Tracks


Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science with a major in health sciences at Oakland University with a pre-pharmacy concentration may pursue admission to any accredited Doctor of Pharmacy program. Students may complete their senior year of coursework at any PharmD program and credits earned from courses at this program will be transferred back to OU to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science with a major in health sciences program. It is highly recommended that students consult with the academic adviser prior to enrolling in any of these classes, as completion of coursework does not guarantee admission or completion of the program. Admission into an accredited PharmD program is required to complete this maturation. Admission to a PharmD program is through a competitive admissions process.  Once accepted, Oakland students will need to 1), send a letter of acceptance to their academic adviser; and 2) register for classes and pay tuition through the PharmD school; 3) send official transcripts after the first year (fall/winter semesters) of the PharmD program to Oakland University.
