|UB Curriculum||The UB Curriculum is a unique program of general education for all undergraduate students at UB. Serving as the core academic experience, it celebrates the joy of intellectual discovery and prepares students for life, career and citizenship in a diverse and dynamic world. Students must complete UB Curriculum prior to fall matriculation in the (P1) first professional year of the PharmD program. UB Curriculum courses may be completed during the summer prior to fall entry into the PharmD.|
Where to complete prerequisites
The following prerequisite courses may be completed prior to high school graduation through AP or IB exam credit articulation: Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, Statistics, and/or UB Curriculum Requirements. Courses may be completed at another SUNY campus or other four-year college or university once enrolled at UB. Non-UB courses must be articulated through UB’s Course Equivalencies Guide.
All first-term EA candidates will also be enrolled in the elective course PHM 101: Pharmacy Is Right for Me.
Our PharmD Early Assurance Program required math and science prerequisite GPA is now 3.0.
This change aligns with the UB SPPS New Path for Academic Success: Honors/Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Grading System which will emphasize learning, improve student knowledge and empower students to become the next generation of pharmacy leaders.
Students who do not demonstrate these proficiencies and attributes will not be eligible for admission through the EA Program.
All admissions requirements are subject to revision and review by the SPPS Admissions Committee and may be revised without extensive notice. As a competitive program, admission can be on a space available basis.
