Pre-Pharmacy

Accelerated Pre-Pharmacy Articulation Agreement
with Duquesne University


Neumann University and Duquesne University have developed a cooperative program of study leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. This six-year doctorate program begins with the Pre-Pharmacy Early-Entry Program at Neumann University. At Neumann, academically qualified students who have been accepted into this program begin two years of pre-pharmacy course work before transferring to the Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy. Students must be accepted into the Neumann University Early-Entry Program as freshmen and must complete the first two years of their undergraduate work at Neumann University. Because of
Neumann University’s special affiliation with Duquesne University, students who successfully complete the two-year program at Neumann are given preferential consideration for admission to the professional phase of the Doctor of Pharmacy Program at Duquesne University. If not accepted, students may elect to complete an undergraduate degree at Neumann University in Biology, Liberal Arts, or Liberal Studies over the course of two more years of study.

 

Requirements for Admission into Neumann University’s
Pre-Pharmacy Early-Entry Program

Candidates for admission to the Pre-Pharmacy Early-Entry Program are required to:


• Have an SAT total of 1050 or higher (out of 1600 Math and Critical Reading); or have an ACT composite total of 23 or higher.

• Earn a GPA of 3.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale.

• Achieve a class rank in the top 25% of the graduating high school class.

• Demonstrate a strong background in University preparatory courses, especially
mathematics.

• Demonstrate evidence of leadership potential, community service, and co-curricular
activities.

• Provide one letter of recommendation from either a high school teacher or guidance
counselor.

• Complete and sign a Release Statement that is required as part of the application
process.

 

Admissions Process for Professional Phase at Duquesne University
Students should apply to Duquesne University by the January 15th yearly deadline during their sophomore year at Neumann University. All applicants will be placed into a pool of Neumann University applicants from which students will be chosen. Once offered acceptance, students will have two weeks to send their enrollment deposit to Duquesne University in order to reserve their space in the program. If the deadline passes without a deposit, the prospective student’s space will be given to another student, and they will be placed at the bottom of the applicant wait list.
