PCOM School of Pharmacy does not routinely accept transfer students; however, a transfer
application may be considered under extenuating circumstances and depending on availability.
No consideration will be given to students who wish to transfer solely to complete
their Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) at PCOM. A minimum of two years
of study must be completed at PCOM for a student to receive the PharmD degree. Depending
on accepted course credit, transferring between pharmacy programs may result in extended
time to graduation.
To be considered for transfer admission to PCOM the applicant must meet the following
- Is currently or recently enrolled in an ACPE‐accredited College or School of Pharmacy
- No temporary or permanent suspensions, or involvement in any adverse action as a result
of conduct violations or academic dishonesty. Candidates for transfer who meet these
requirements must provide:
- A letter detailing the reason for the transfer request to the PCOM School of Pharmacy
- Official transcripts and syllabi of all coursework in the College/School of Pharmacy
- A letter sent directly from the Dean of the College/School of Pharmacy, or designated
individual, that the candidate for transfer is in at the College/School of Pharmacy
and that the student has not been temporarily or permanently suspended, dismissed,
or involved in any adverse action as a result of conduct violations or academic dishonesty.
The Office of the Assistant Dean for Professional and Student Affairs and the Associate
Dean for Academics will consider transfer feasibility based on such variables as seat
availability, student academic strength, and program‐to‐program curricular match.
Transfer students will ONLY be considered for fall term admission.
All requests and supporting documentation for transfers must be submitted to the Associate
Dean for Academics by June 15th. A formal interview with the PCOM SOP Admissions Committee
will be required. A final decision on transfer requests will be determined by the
Dean or designee. If a student is accepted for transfer, PCOM reserves the right to
require a financial deposit to hold the seat.
Advanced Standing and Transfer Credit
For transfer students, PCOM will consider accepting credit for coursework completed
at ACPE accredited colleges/schools of pharmacy accepted transfer candidates seeking
advance standing. PCOM will evaluate all completed courses for the purpose of course
credit, if applicable. PCOM does not guarantee the acceptance of any academic credit
completed at a different School/College of Pharmacy towards the curricular requirements
of the PCOM PharmD program.
