Pharmacy, PharmD Admission Process - Direct Entry Option

The direct entry option allows first-time students to seamlessly transition from high school into the PharmD program—becoming practice-ready pharmacists in a range of areas in six years. As a first-time student, you’ll complete the entire program—both the pre-professional and professional phases—and you won’t need to apply for the professional phase if you meet all requirements.

For first year applicants to the fall 2020 semester, please contact the admission office by email at, call at 1-888-996-8747, or text at 215-201-4891 to apply.
