Pharmacy Dual Acceptance Program

The University of Saint Francis and Midwestern University (in Chicago) have teamed up to offer a dual acceptance program in pharmacy. Exceptional high-school students apply to both the University of Saint Francis and Midwestern University. Upon acceptance, students may complete an associate degree at the University of Saint Francis (64-68 hours) over two years providing them the core science courses. The remaining courses are taken at Midwestern University in Chicago resulting in a Doctorate in Pharmacy (PharmD).  Applicants must apply during their senior year of high school. 

Placement exams are required for Chemistry and Math at the University of Saint Francis; therefore, students may be required to take additional hours if they are placed in a lower-level course. Some summer courses may be required to complete the program within the 2-year time frame. The deadline for applications is early February. For more information about this program, please contact Dr. Jean Elick.
