Pharmacy Student Registration Information

Professional pharmacy students register according to their rising class regardless of the total credits completed. Pharmacy students will register at the following days/times:

  • Rising P3 (current P2) students will register on Tuesday, Apr. 9 @ 7 am
  • Rising P2 (current P1) students will register on Tuesday, Apr. 9 @ 7:30 am
  • Rising P1 (conditionally admitted) students will register on Wednesday, Apr. 10 @ 7 am

The "rising" class indicates the status of the student for the term in which they will be registering for. Conditionally admitted P1 students will register as rising P1's; students on second review will register based on earned credit hours.

It is your responsibility to track your degree progress and follow the registration policies and procedures. Prior to registration you should review your curriculum guide and degree audit to determine the courses you need to complete next semester.

Reminder: All curriculum requirements must be competed by the end of your P3 year with no "In Progress" grades. If you have questions or concerns about this, please contact Sydni Jennings at to discuss your options.

Planning to Register for more than 18 credits?  If you need to register for more than 18 credit hours during registration, please complete the Credit Overload Request Form in the CPHS Forms Library prior to your registration day and time. If your curriculum requires over 18 credit hours, you do not need to complete this form. Your maximum credit hours will already be adjusted at the time of registration.

Planning to repeat a course, but do not need to repeat the co-requisite (i.e. lab or discussion section)?  Please contact Allyssa Ruths at, at least 24 hours prior to your registration day/time to obtain approval and the appropriate override, allowing you to register for the lecture or lab without the co-requisite during your scheduled registration time. Please include your Drake ID along with your request.

Registration for Labs/Discussions: Students may only register for one lab/discussion section. If a student registers for more than one lab/discussion section or registers for one lab/discussion section and waitlists in another, the student will be removed from BOTH lab sections. If all discussion or lab sections are full, please contact listing all discussion and/or lab sections in order of preference. If you have a course schedule conflict, please share that information within the email.
