*Electives may depend on which pharmacy school attending. Note: The three-year program outlined above is now the norm for a pre-pharmacy program. Fewer than 25% of student entering pharmacy school do so with only two years of college preparation. Exceptional students may complete a two-year program if some laboratory sciences are taken in summer sessions. The calculus requirement varies with pharmacy schools and since some require a minimum of five semester hours, the MAT 151-152 sequence is recommended. Most Colleges of Pharmacy require a minimum of 70 semester credit hours for admission.
