Pre-Pharmacy

Newark College of Arts and Sciences participates in the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy 2+4 pharmacy program.  Only students who apply directly from high school to the Program are eligible to be considered for admission.  Applicants who have completed more than 12.0 credits of college-level coursework or who have been admitted to another academic program of study (even one at the Newark College of Arts and Sciences) are ineligible to apply.  Students who are part of the 2+4 program can find information   

Students not specifically admitted to the 2+4 Program who wish to pursue pharmacy would need to apply to the School of Pharmacy as a school-to-school transfer after two or more years of study (click here for details and procedures). However, this approach is very competitive and those applying must take the necessary courses in a timely manner.  All science courses must be taken during the school year and not in the summer.  There is no guarantee that your application will be successful regardless of GPA.
