Incoming freshmen entering UB directly from high school who indicate pharmacy as their intended major are automatically admitted to UB's Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree program through our prestigious Early Assurance (EA) 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:
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.
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 Interactive Graduate Application
and supplemental 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
