The associate of arts in pre-pharmacy program fulfills the course requirements necessary for admittance to the Pharm D program at West Virginia University School of Pharmacy. Admission is competitive, and preference is given to qualified West Virginians, although outstanding nonresident applicants are considered. Students planning to apply to a pharmacy program at another institution should determine the admission requirements and transfer equivalencies for the courses offered at Potomac State College of WVU and that institution.

Pre-Pharmacy students should (1) complete the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) in the fall of their sophomore year, and (2) apply for admission to the WVU School of Pharmacy via PharmCAS as early as possible after January 1 of their sophomore year. Consult the WVU Health Sciences Center Catalog for further information.

The pre-pharmacy program provides the foundation in biology, chemistry and math required for admission into and success in the Pharm D program.
