Student Pharm.D. Honors Program

Pharm.D. students looking for educational stimulation and challenge beyond the traditional curriculum are invited to participate in the College’s Honors Program.  This selective program challenges participants by introducing them to new ideas and placing them in contact with others of similar aptitude.  Honors Program students participate in research projects with faculty mentors, and present their results at college seminars.  Many of these students also present their results at national meetings and in peer-reviewed journal articles.

Candidates for the Pharm.D. Honors Program can be admitted to the program no earlier than the Spring semester of the P2 year, and no later than the Fall semester of the P3 year. 

Criteria for admission to the program include:

  1. Admission to the professional pharmacy sequence

  2. A grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.00 on a 4.00 scale in all required pharmacy coursework completed at the time of application to the program

  3. Approval by the Honors Program Committee

Graduation with Special Honors

Students completing the Pharm.D. Honors Program with a cumulative 3.00 GPA will be candidates for graduation with special honors. This GPA must be maintained in all required pharmacy courses as well as in all other pharmacy courses including those elective courses that are approved for pharmacy elective credit offered outside the college.
