Our pre-pharmacy program will prepare you to meet the pre-professional curricular requirements for Butler University College of Pharmacy and Purdue University School of Pharmacy. We designed this program to be completed in two years, but it does not result in a Ball State degree.
Both the Purdue and Butler combined pre-pharmacy/pharmacy programs leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy requires six years; however, the number of applicants to either college of pharmacy exceeds the capacity of the school. Therefore, the schools admit students to the pre-pharmacy and pharmacy programs based on scholastic standing, character, and professional aptitude. Become familiar with Butler University's admission requirements and Purdue University's admission requirements.
