The Pre-pharmacy program offered by the Western New England University is an ideal place for future pharmacists to excel. Through the Early Assurance Program (EAP), qualifying high school seniors applying to the Pre-pharmacy program can be assured a seat in the Pharmacy program. 

Overview

The Pre-pharmacy program offered by the Western New England University. Pharmacists hold a unique place in our communities. They serve as both healers dispensing the medicine used to cure even our most serious ailments, and as confidants, trusted friends consulted when we need them most.

Students must meet GPA and course grade requirements in prerequisite Pre-pharmacy courses and complete a successful admissions interview. Successful EAP candidates will not have to take the PCAT exam. Once in the PharmD program, qualifying students will receive a bachelor's degree after four years of study and the PharmD degree after six years.
