Wilkes University's two-year, Pre-Pharmacy course sequence is designed to prepare you for the challenges of the School of Pharmacy's four-year Professional Pharmacy curriculum.
Admission to the Guaranteed Seat Pre-Pharmacy Program is very competitive.
Enrollment is limited to 70 students. Students may only enter the program as freshmen graduating from high school.
The application process for the program is as follows
- Applicants must first complete a Wilkes University admission application.
- Applicants who meet the SAT criteria (scores greater than 1000) and class rank criteria (upper 50%) are forwarded an application for the School of Pharmacy. (Minimum 550 Math SAT score)
- Students must also...
1) submit three recommendations;
2) work in a pharmacy or have shadowed a pharmacist for a minimum of eight hours.
Applications for the Guaranteed Seat Pre-Pharmacy Program are accepted
starting in June of each year and must be completed by February 1. There are typically many more applicants than there are seats available in the program.
Since applicants are admitted on a rolling basis, all seats may be awarded before the February 1 deadline. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to complete the application process as early as possible.
The School of Pharmacy at Wilkes University is fully accredited
by The American Council on Pharmaceutical Education.
