Program Information/Mission:
Admission requirements to colleges of pharmacy vary considerably. Students planning to enter a pharmacy school should seek specific information from the school they wish to attend. Acceptance into a college of pharmacy is extremely competitive.  Entrance into a college of pharmacy directly from ICC is possible; an alternative would be to receive a baccalaureate degree in biology, chemistry, or bio-chemistry before applying to the pharmacy college of their choice.
