This information is meant to serve as a general guide for students intending to pursue a pre-pharmacy curriculum at UNM. Specific requirements for transfer will vary from school to school. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the transfer school to confirm specific admission and degree requirements.

Pre-Pharmacy is NOT a major at UNM. Students complete pre-pharmacy coursework and then apply to directly enter the School of Pharmacy. Students with a GPA higher than 3.0 will be most competitive in the admissions process, and there are additional admission criteria, including the PCAT exam, letters of reference, and required experience. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a UNM College of Pharmacy advisor to confirm course equivalencies and learn more about admission procedures. Contact information is available on the College of Pharmacy website. In addition, students are encouraged to meet with a UNM Arts and Sciences Advisor to discuss major options while they wait to enter the School of Pharmacy. Visit the Arts and Sciences Advisement website.
