Applying to STLCOP

We are pleased that you have decided to apply to St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Our academic programs, leading to a Doctor of Pharmacy with an integrated Bachelor of Science, will provide you with the foundation you need to serve as a medication expert on interprofessional health care teams.

Multiple Points of Entry

As a prospective student, you may apply for admission at several entry points. The point at which you are admitted to the program depends on the coursework you have completed so far.

Select an entry point to learn more about the admission process and requirements.

Admission to the College is selective, and we encourage you to apply early. If you have questions, contact the Office of Admissions.

Direct Entry

Our direct-entry program means that students are admitted for the program’s duration, assuming all academic requirements are met. There is no need to apply for a “pre-pharmacy” curriculum and then apply again for entrance into the professional portion of the program. 

AP, IB and Dual Credit

Some students bring existing credit to the College. The College accepts Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and dual credit. Credit for previous coursework may be applied toward degree requirements or electives. Contact your admissions representative to learn if your credits will transfer to the College.
