Pharmacy Student Registration Information

Professional pharmacy students register according to their class regardless of the total of credits completed. Pharmacy students, P1 - P2, will register at the following days/times:

  • Current P2 students will register on Tuesday, Apr. 14 @ 7 am
  • Current P1 students will register on Wednesday, Apr. 15 @ 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. You have 3 credits set aside in your P2 Spring semester and P3 Spring semester to complete your remaining Drake Curriculum/General Electives. If you are a P3 and have more than 6 credits of Drake Curriculum/General Electives remaining, please contact Sydni Jennings at to discuss your summer course and cross-enrollment options.

Planning to Register for more than 18 credits?  If you need to register for more than 18 credit hours or more during registration, please complete the Over 18 Hours Request Form on the CPHS Forms Library prior to your registration day and time. If you are a rising P2 student and your fall 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. If you are a rising P2 and would like to register for more than 18.5 credit hours, please complete the Over 18 Hours Request Form.

Planning to repeat a course, but do not need to repeat the co-requisite (i.e. lab or discussion section)?  Please contact Sydni Jennings 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 Sydni Jennings at with a listing of all 3 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 MyDUSIS, click on the Student Services and Financial Aid link --> Registration link --> Look Up Classes to Add. 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 Look Up Classes to Add results screen.

P1 Students:

Special Registration Instructions for PHAR 134 and PHAR 154:
