All required science courses (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) require a laboratory component. Advanced Placement courses are NOT accepted to fulfill science requirements. Three Biology courses are required. General Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology are recommended. All prepharmacy coursework must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better PRIOR to matriculation into the Wegmans School of Pharmacy.

PCAT and Other Tests

Optional
The Wegmans School of Pharmacy is not requiring the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT); it is optional. However, if you believe the PCAT provides evidence of growth and academic preparedness, you are encouraged to submit PCAT scores to PharmCAS. Additionally, if your science or cumulative GPA is below 3.0, the PCAT is recommended. If a PCAT score will be part of your application, you are advised to take the PCAT early in the admission cycle; the PCAT must be taken on or before the February test dates to be considered for fall admission. A minimum composite score not required; however, competitive applicants typically score at or above the 60th percentile.
