IMPORTANT NOTICE:
For students that seek to secure placement in other Pharmacy programs outside of Long Island University, addition pre-requisite courses may be required. The undergraduate classes required for admission into a pharmacy degree program vary significantly from one institution to the next. Due to the variations in admission requirements and procedures among the colleges and schools of pharmacy, it is advisable to research different pharmacy programs. Visit the pharmacy school Web sites for course requirements. School specific information is also available on the PharmCAS site and in the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) annual publication, "Pharmacy School Admission Requirements". These publications can be found at http://www.aacp.org/resources/student/pharmacyforyou/admissions/Pages/PSAR.aspx
