Additional Information

To qualify for admission to CCP, students must complete at least 62 semester hours of non-remedial prerequisite coursework from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university. Students must receive grades of a “C” or better in all prerequisite courses. (We are unable to accept grades of “C-” (minus).) If college credit is earned from Advanced Placement exam(s), that credit will be accepted if it is recognized by the undergraduate institution and appears on the official transcript.

To best prepare for the rigor of a full-time pharmacy school curriculum, it is recommended to take full-time undergraduate course loads whenever possible. Not only will this accelerate the completion of prerequisite courses, it will also help build all-important time-management skills, develop good study habits, as well as provide an excellent foundation for future pharmacy coursework.

For questions or guidance, please contact the Office of Admissions at 800-458-6253 or We look forward to working with you.
