Three routes. One Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

Ready to dig into the PharmD program at UM? You’ve got three options for admission.

The Traditional UM Pre-Pharmacy Admission Pathway: choose this option if you’re starting off by entering as an undergraduate pre-pharmacy major.

The GrizRX Assurance Program Pathway: Academically qualified high school seniors who want to expedite their route to the PharmD, this one’s for you.

The Transfer Pathway: Got pre-pharmacy credentials from another institution? No problem —you’ll apply via PharmCAS too.

Traditional UM Pre-Pharmacy Admission Pathway

For this route, you’ll apply normally for an undergraduate degree at UM and declare a pre-pharmacy major. (Pretty self-explanatory, right?) Once you’ve completed the prerequisites, you’ll head over to the PharmCAS application and apply there for admission to the PharmD!

GrizRX Assurance Program Pathway

Got a GPA of 3.5 or above and an ACT of at least 25? Good news you can expedite your path to pharmacy school. Just apply as the pre-pharmacy major to UM, complete two years of prerequisites, and then hop over to PharmCAS to apply.

Non-UM Admission Pathway

Didn’t go to UM for your undergrad? No worries you can still apply for the PharmD using the normal process in PharmCAS.
