Interested students will follow a specific track at their college. If they meet all requirements, after three years, students will matriculate into TCOP, and after satisfactory completion of their first year at TCOP, their undergraduate institution will award a bachelor’s degree.

During a student's three years in college, the following is required:

  • A cumulative GPA of 3.0 
  • Completion of our prerequisite courses
  • A favorable recommendation by a science professor and/or Pre-health Advisor and 2 additional recommendations, one of which should be a healthcare provider when possible
  • A satisfactory personal interview by Touro College of Pharmacy faculty
  • A completed PharmCAS application

Participation in the Pathway is not a guarantee that the candidate will be granted admission to Touro College of Pharmacy and final decisions will be solely at the discretion of Touro College of Pharmacy.

Students pursuing this pathway who do not meet or exceed the above standards have the privilege of applying for admission to Touro College of Pharmacy through the regular channels. All candidates must meet Touro College of Pharmacy admission standards at the time of their enrollment into Touro College of Pharmacy.

Touro College of Pharmacy reserves the right to deny admission to students who, in the opinion of Touro College of Pharmacy, may have difficulty obtaining a pharmacy license.

*This is a 4+4 agreement that provides early consideration for CUNY Hunter College students.
