Graduate School

Doctor of Pharmacy

Pharmacy is a rapidly changing profession, and the faculty and administration at High Point University believe it is essential that our graduates be able to lead in these times of change. The School of Pharmacy has been created to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to design and manage medication therapies that meet both current and future needs. Students will receive and education that will position them to practice pharmacy in a variety of settings, or to pursue advance clinical or academic training.

Students earn their Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) after six rigorous years of education. Students are not penalized if they complete the pre professional track in three or four years instead of two but the additional courses taken during this time do not affect the number of credit hours necessary to complete the professional portion of the program.

The University will seek accreditation for the proposed school from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) prior to accepting students into the professional program. For information about accreditation of pharmacy programs by ACPE see
