Neumann University

This cooperative program between Neumann University and Wilkes University is a six-year doctorate program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. The Pre-Pharmacy Program at Neumann University allows academically qualified students to attend Neumann University for two years of pre-pharmacy course work before transferring to the Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy. Students must be accepted into the Neumann University program as freshmen and must complete the first two years of their undergraduate work at Neumann University.  Because of the Neumann University special affiliation with Wilkes University, students who successfully complete the two-year program at Neumann are given preferential consideration for admission to the professional phase of the Doctor of Pharmacy Program at Wilkes University. If not accepted, students may elect to complete an undergraduate degree at Neumann University in Biology, Liberal Arts, or Liberal Studies over the course of two more years of study.
