Students Applying for Entry in the First-Preprofessional
Year (Applying from High School)
For accreditation purposes, students at the School of
Pharmacy are limited to 8 credits received for any combination of Advanced
Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and courses at other
institutions prior to the start of the fall of the first preprofessional year.
This usually results in a limit of two courses being replaced by previous
credit. Students are encouraged to submit documentation for programs listed
above as soon as possible and will be notified in mid-August regarding what credits they
are eligible for based on the 8-credit limit.
Students Applying for Entry into the First Professional Year (Applying as a Transfer with College Credits)
Due to the highly competitive nature of the transfer
process, applicants may exceed the 8-credit limit. To be eligible for
admission, applicants are expected to have all the preprofessional requirements
complete at their current college. Upon admission, courses will be evaluated by
the appropriate department at Rutgers to determine equivalencies.
