IMPORTANT: UCCS does not have a pharmacy program. Pre-Pharmacy Prep is not a major or a minor but a listing of prerequisite courses and recommendations needed to be eligible for admission into CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO.

Students completing the pre-Pharmacy Prep program are advised to choose a major and  graduate with a bachelor’s degree from UCCS. A college program leading to a bachelor’s degree generally strengthens a student’s application to the program.

Other programs may have different requirements. Students should check admissions requirements for all schools to which they plan to apply. Completion of requisite coursework does not guarantee acceptance into any professional degree.

Application Information for the CU School of Pharmacy’s PharmD program, including admissions requirements, contact information, application materials, deadlines, and testing, can be found at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/pharmacy/Pages/SchoolofPharmacy.aspx

For more information, contact Academic Advising at (719) 255-3260 or advising@uccs.edu.

Additional Required Courses


Prerequisites: Many courses have prerequisites that fall outside of this list; be sure to check the catalog for course details. Science labs and the public speaking course cannot be completed online.

Time Limits: Science and math courses must have been completed within the last 10 years.

Grades: All requisite coursework should be completed with a grade of “C” or better, and must be completed in the spring semester prior to matriculation. The average cumulative GPA of admitted students is 3.4.

Credit by Exam: CLEP or department exam credits are not accepted to fulfill prerequisite course requirements. Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) credit is accepted only if transcript reflects the exact credit earned.
