Michigan Pharmacy Schools

Course Requirements for Michigan Pharmacy Schools

This document is a guide only. Students must consult with their preprofessional advisor AND the appropriate pharmacy schools on a regular basis for revisions to prerequisites and to ensure completion of all application requirements. This guide is based on the completion of a bachelor degree from MSU. Students who will not complete a bachelor degree prior to admission to Pharmacy School MUST contact schools regarding additional requirements.

Contact individual schools if you have Advanced Placement (AP) credit for prerequisite requirements. Each professional school has their own policy on whether or not to accept courses from Advanced Placement and Community Colleges. Students must individually contact the schools to determine the requirements.
