The Gator Pharmacy Early Assurance Program allows highly-qualified high school seniors and UF freshman an opportunity to streamline their path into pharmacy school. This program is designed to assist students through the early process of becoming a pharmacist by providing workshops, training and opportunities related to pharmacy careers. Participants in this 1-2 year program will need to do the following:
- Complete all of the pre-professional coursework required for entry in UF’s Pharm.D. program,
- Become active members in the UF Pre-Pharmacy Society
- Gain pharmacy experience through shadowing interning and/or employment in a pharmacy setting.
Upon completion of the program, students are guaranteed an interview for the UF College of Pharmacy’s Pharm.D. program. Additionally, those students with a science GPA of 3.4 or higher will not be required to submit a PCAT score with their application to the Pharm.D program.
The program is open to UF students who have/or will indicate pre-pharmacy as a track with a GPA of 2.75 or higher at the time of their application. UF students must also have one year remaining in their undergraduate studies. High school seniors who have been admitted to UF and will select a pre-pharmacy track are also eligible to apply.
Applications should be made before or during the college freshman year using the form below. The UF College of Pharmacy’s admissions office will notify applicants of their admission status on a rolling basis. However, applicants are encouraged to apply by the preferred deadline:
- Newly admitted UF Student: September 7
- UF Freshman: January 8
