Program Description

The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences welcomes applications from qualified applicants into the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program.

Graduates of the PharmD program will be eligible for licensure as a registered pharmacist upon graduation. The curriculum has been designed to produce pharmacists qualified to assume practice and leadership roles within the profession. Specific emphasis has been placed on students taking classes in the basic sciences (including basic pharmaceutical sciences), mathematics, biomedical and social sciences. The curriculum of the College has been approved and fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.

The admissions process for the College of Pharmacy is selective with limited enrollment. Although the required GPA for the professional program is a minimum of 2.75, a variety of other factors are considered. The goal is to produce a well-rounded general pharmacy practitioner who can think critically, work effectively in health-care settings and has the desire to provide care to all patients.

Admission into the professional program at the first professional year is either in Tallahassee (main campus) or in Crestview, Florida. Lectures will be provided to students at the main campus and simultaneously delivered through synchronous technology to the student at Crestview in real time.

Students must participate in PharmCAS and complete the University application (application fee is required).
