PharmD Pathway: Transfer Applicants

Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2024

The WNE College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences welcomes applicants who have been enrolled in another Doctor of Pharmacy program and are looking to transfer into the WNE Doctor of Pharmacy program.

Students who have completed fall and spring PY1 coursework at another school must have an overall GPA of 2.5 in their Doctor of Pharmacy program to be considered for admission as a transfer student into our program.

If the GPA is 2.5 or above, the student must submit the following information to Lori Berg, director of admissions and recruitment, at

  • Official transcripts from current pharmacy school
  • Official transcripts from all schools attended
  • Letter from a dean within their current pharmacy school indicating good standing (either academic OR character)
  • Supplemental application form

*Additional recommendation letters are optional

All documents are reviewed by the Admissions Committee to determine if an invitation to interview will be offered. After the interview is completed, the Admissions Committee will review the application and render an admissions decision.

If the student is admitted, they must work with the Dean of Academic Affairs to determine which coursework from their previous institution will be transferable into our curriculum.

Students who have not completed fall and spring PY1 coursework, or whose overall GPA while enrolled in their pharmacy program was below 2.5, must apply as a first-year student via PharmCAS.

To begin the transfer process, please reach out to Lori Berg, director of admissions and recruitment, at

Priority Deadline: October 3, 2023
Regular deadline: Rolling - accepting applications on a space-available basis until June 3, 2024
