High School Students via Early Assurance (EA)

EA @ UB is 2+4 = 6

Incoming freshmen entering UB directly from high school who indicate pharmacy as their intended major are automatically admitted into our Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree program through our prestigious Early Assurance (EA) Program. 

About the Program

This program gives talented freshmen the heightened advantage of securing a seat in our four-year PharmD degree after completing two years of prescribed undergraduate course work.   

EA @ UB offers significant advantages all at an excellent value:

  • A simplified application process - PharmCAS application, PCAT, recommendation letters, personal statement, and experiences are NOT required
  • A top-ranked program with a reputation as the most established training program in New York
  • Access to renowned faculty involved in ground-breaking research
  • An innovative educational experience  

Through EA, qualified students do not have to compete with hundreds of PharmCAS applicants. This outstanding opportunity, available since 1998, has consistently provided a comprehensive curriculum in preparation for our PharmD program.

EA @ UB is restricted to students who enter UB directly from high school.

How to Apply

Admission to the EA program is based on the University’s Freshman Admission Criteria. There are no additional high school GPA or SAT/ACT requirements. EA is not the sole route into our PharmD program and ineligibility for EA does not imply that a student is not qualified for admission. All other applicants are considered through PharmCAS.

Indicate pharmacy as your intended major (on initial application or before the end of your first semester at UB).  

After acceptance, submit the UB SPPS supplemental form and survey, due November 1 of fall semester freshman year. Students will receive the links to the application and survey via email. Contact the UB SPPS Academic Advisor for more information.
