Pharmacy Student Registration Information

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

  • Current P3 students will register on Tuesday, Nov. 1 @ 7 am
  • Current P2 students will register on Tuesday, Nov. 1 @ 7:30 am
  • Current P1 students will register on Wednesday, Nov. 2 @ 7 am

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 Nicholas Kavanaugh 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 spring 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.

To search for Professional Pharmacy Electives, log in to Self Service, click "Registration and Schedules" on the Registration card, and select appropriate term. From the subject menu, select Health Sciences and Pharmacy. Approved Pharmacy Professional Electives are noted in the Attribute column on the far right of the results screen.

Current P1 Students

Please be advised that the spring curriculum for P1 students requires a 19-credit hour course load. A 1-credit hour fee waiver request will be submitted by the college for all P1 students and will eventually reflect on your account. You do not need to submit a Credit Overload Request Form for PHAR 123 as these adjustments have already been made. If you need an overload for any reason besides the above course, you will still need to submit the request form as usual.

All PharmD Students

Please generate a new degree audit in Self Service to review the following items prior to registration:

  • What P1/P2/P3 required courses do you have left to complete?
  • What AOI's do you have left to complete? Artistic Literacy, Historical Foundations (2), Global and Cultural Understanding, and Written Communication.
  • How many General Electives do you have left to complete? 27 credits required - this includes your Artistic Literacy, Historical Foundations (2), Written Communication, and Global and Cultural AOI's
  • How many Pharmacy Professional Electives do you have left to complete? 5 credits required (6 credits required of students entering Fall 2019 and prior). Professional electives are designated with the P-EL attribute in Self Service.

Immediately following registration, generate a new audit to confirm that you have registered for the correct courses.
