SCHOOL OF PHARMACY
Students entering the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (B.S.P.S.) program must satisfy the general admissions requirements and procedures of the university. Admission into the B.S.P.S. program can occur in the fall of the freshman year, i.e., "Early Entry," but more typically after completion of the pre-pharmacy curriculum at The University of Mississippi or other accredited institution, i.e., "Regular Entry." Procedures and criteria for early entry and regular entry admission into the professional pharmacy program are given on the website of the School of Pharmacy. Early Entry admission decisions are based on ACT/SAT score, GPA for 10th, 11th, and 12th grades, interview, and evaluation of service, leadership, and work experience (www.pharmacy.olemiss.edu). To gain regular entry admission, a student must have a cumulative GPA (calculated on all grades earned) of at least 2.75 on all required pre-pharmacy courses (excluding electives in humanities, fine arts, and social sciences), have obtained a minimum composite scaled score of 395, and a conventions of language score of exceeding 2.0 on the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) taken within 12 months of the application deadline. The holistic process also includes an interview and evaluation of leadership, service, and work experience. Admission into the professional curriculum requires proof of an extern/intern license issued by the Mississippi Board of Pharmacy for which a criminal background check is required at the applicant's expense. Following completion of the B.S.P.S. degree, students will be admitted into the Doctor of Pharmacy program if they have achieved at least a 2.65 GPA on first year required professional courses.
