Pre-Pharmacy and PharmD FAQ

Welcome to the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences' Admission FAQ page.  This page will address common questions that we receive from students who are interested in applying to our pre-pharmacy and Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) programs.  

Students may be admitted to the two-year pre-pharmacy program directly from high school and, after completing the established criteria, may be admitted to the four-year professional program.  Students who complete their prerequisite coursework at another regionally accredited institution or in a major other than pre-pharmacy at Drake can apply directly to our PharmD program. 

If you encounter problems with any of the links on this page, or if you have suggestions for additional questions we should address on this page, please use the Contact Us link within the Resources section of our website.  If you do not find the answer to your question here, please contact the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at (515) 271-3018 or for more information.
