Admission Requirements

Applicants to the BSPS program are invited to apply as either a transfer student from a college/university other than the University of Michigan or as a cross campus transfer student from within the University of Michigan.  This distinction is important as there are different application forms depending on the type of transfer.  Applicants must have completed at least one full semester of college courses at an accredited 2-year or 4-year institution.  Applications are not accepted from students directly out of high school.  The College of Pharmacy only accepts students for Fall Term entry.

Students interested in the BS program in Pharmaceutical Sciences must apply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as a transfer applicant.  The deadline to apply is March 1, 2017.  

Visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions Transfer Page to apply.
