The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has solidified articulation agreements with area community colleges for students to smoothly transfer into the PharmD program. Those schools are: Holyoke Community College, Berkshire Community College, Greenfield Community College, and Springfield Technical Community College.

"This agreement further solidifies our bond between the University and our partners at the community colleges," said Josh Spooner, Professor and Assistant Dean for Student Affairs at Western New England University. "It is an excellent opportunity for those students who decided to pursue what can be a very rewarding and fulfilling career in pharmacy."

Prospective Pharmacy students attending these schools must take the 67 credits of prerequisite coursework for the PharmD program, complete their associate’s degree, and formally apply to the PharmD program at WNE. If accepted, these students are eligible for the PharmD Transfer Distinction Scholarship which is currently awarded at $18,000 per year for two years.
