What is Pre-Pharmacy at WVU like?
The PharmD program at WVU is classified as a "2+4" program — meaning students need a minimum of two years of undergraduate prerequisites prior to starting the professional curriculum.
High-achieving, first-time freshmen have the opportunity to participate in the School's Direct Admit Pathway (DAP). The DAP program offers early assurance and prepares students for the PharmD admissions process.
Students who do not qualify for DAP should complete the courses listed in the PharmD plan of study.
Students will enter a competitive application process in the year before entering the four-year professional curriculum including completing a PharmCAS application, taking the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) and going through the interview process.
