College of Pharmacy

The Prepharmacy major prepares students for the Doctor of Pharmacy (professional) program at the Purdue University College of Pharmacy. For admission into the professional curriculum leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.), completion of the entire Prepharmacy program is required, after which successful applicants to the Pharm.D. program continue their studies for an additional four years.  Admission into and completion of the Prepharmacy program does not guarantee admission into the Doctor of Pharmacy Program at Purdue.

Usually students are admitted into the Prepharmacy program as their first college experience, although students may transfer from other majors at Purdue or other colleges and universities.
