The Pre-Pharmacy Early Assurance program provides reserved seats in the PharmD program at USciences, provided students meet all of the progression criteria. Students in this program will be able to earn both the Bachelor of Science (BS) and Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degrees in as little as six years after graduation from high school. Eligible U1 students will spend their first two to four years in Misher College of Arts and Sciences (MCAS) and then transfer to Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) for the four professional years of the PharmD program. Pre-Pharmacy Early Assurance program students who do not move to the PharmD program after two years must move to a degree-granting program in MCAS or PCP before the start of their third year. These students may apply to the PharmD program during their U3 and U4 years. Upon successful completion of all requirements of the PharmD or other degree-granting program, students will receive their degree.
