1. Students must have earned a bachelor's degree prior to admission. However, The Early Admission Program (EAP) is intended to guarantee highly qualified students the opportunity to enter the College of Pharmacy Pharm.D. program after successful completion of the program prerequisites. Please refer to departmental link for all information.

2. Students should work closely with a RCC Science advisor for all course planning.

Additional Requirements:
1. Students who are not completing the AAOT will be required to meet OSUís Baccalaureate Core requirements. Please refer to the Baccalaureate Equivalency link below for these requirements.

2. In addition to the Baccalaureate Core requirements, students must meet the requirements for the BA/BS degree. Requirements for the BA degree differ significantly from those for a BS degree in the same department. Many departments offer only one or the other of the two baccalaureate degrees. Check departmental curricula for detailed information. The BA degree requires foreign language proficiency equivalent to that attained at the end of the second year course in the language.

3. For transfer admission, OSU requires completion of 36 transfer credits with a minimum 2.25 GPA and completion of Wr 121 and Math 111.

NOTE: University requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with RCC advisors or counselors and their transfer institution to ensure the accuracy of their academic plan.
