Pre-Pharmacy Registration Information

It is your responsibility to track your degree progress and follow the registration policies and procedures.  Prior to registration, review your curriculum guide and degree audit to ensure you are registering for the appropriate classes.  



Registration Day/Time: All pre-pharmacy students will register according to the number of earned credits hours. Students can view the registration days and times here

CPHS Student Organization Block: If possible, plan your schedule around the CPHS Student Organization Block on Thursdays from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm. This time is set aside for CPHS student organizations to hold meetings, guest speakers, events, etc.

Planning to repeat a course, but not the lab (BIO 012, CHEM 001)?  Students planning to repeat a lecture section ONLY of CHEM 001, 002, 097, 108 and BIO 012 and/or BIO 013, may register for the lecture section without the lab via MyDUSIS.  For assistance with any other repeat course registration-related issues, please contact Beth Hudson at beth.hudson@drake.edu for assistance and include your Drake ID along with your request.

Registration for Labs: Students may only register for one lab section. If a student registers for more than one lab section or registers for one lab section and waitlists in another, the student will be removed from BOTH lab sections.

First-Year Pre-Pharmacy Students

When interpreting your audit, please check the following items:

  • What Pre-Pharmacy Math/Science courses do you have left to complete?  Please remember, your required math/science courses must be completed at Drake University.

  • What Other Pre-Pharmacy Requirements do you have left to complete? (i.e. CAPS, Written Communication AOI, Public Speaking)

  • What AOI's do you have left to complete?  (You are responsible for completing the following AOI's: Artistic Experience, Engaged Citizen, 2 Historical Foundations, Global and Cultural Understanding and Written Communication.)

  • How many General Electives do you have left to complete? (27 credits required - this includes your Artistic Experience, Engaged Citizen, 2 Historical Foundations, and Global and Cultural Understanding AOI's)

In order to be on track for the professional program, you should have 63 credit hours completed by the end of your sophomore year.

**Please Note: We do NOT recommend pre-pharmacy students enroll in summer Organic Chemistry, unless you are studying abroad during the academic year. As a foundational class for the professional program curriculum, the knowledge you gain from Organic will be used in Biochemistry, Intro to Pharm Sci, and many other professional program courses. In the past, students have found it challenging to have a full year between Organic and the P1 Fall semester classes. In addition, because the summer courses are compacted into 8 weeks, students have found they were not able to retain the level of information needed, putting them at a disadvantages in the program.

Sophomore Pre-Pharmacy Students

You should register for Fall classes based on the communication from your conditional admission decision:

If you have been offered Conditional Admission, the CPHS Office of Academic and Student Affairs will register you for the P1 courses, with the exception of PHAR 144/144L and any additional elective courses that you plan to complete. You will be responsible for registering for these courses during your Fall 2015 registration time.

If you have been placed on Second Review, please select courses that pertain to your new major. You will not be permitted to register for courses that are designated as P1 fall courses. If you are offered final admission after the conclusion of the Spring 2015 semster, the CPHS Office of Academic and Student Affairs will work with you to register for the required P1 courses.

*The status of Conditional Admission or Second Review does not affect your registration day or time. All pre-pharmacy students will register according to registration days and times based on their total of earned credits.
