Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences, B.S., Specialization in Pre-Pharmacy


Students pursuing a Bachelor of Science with a major in Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences at Oakland University with a pre-pharmacy specialization may pursue admission to any accredited Doctor of Pharmacy program. Students admitted to an accredited PharmD program must complete their final year of undergraduate coursework at that program and credits earned from courses must be transferred back to OU to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science with a major in Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences. 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 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.

Students not accepted into a PharmD program may complete the degree program outlined below for a Bachelor of Science with a major in Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences.
