Performance Requirements

All courses listed in the pre-pharmacy curriculum must be completed with a minimum grade of "C" prior to enrollment in the professional program of the SIUE School of Pharmacy. The Admissions Committee considers all grades earned through the fall term proceeding the term for which the student is applying. For example, a student who seeks admission for the fall of 2015 and who earns a grade of "D" or "F" in a pre- pharmacy course during the fall semester of 2014 will not be eligible for consideration for admission.

In order to be considered for admission to the professional program, applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 2.75 (on a 4.0 scale) in each of the following:

  • Cumulative GPA for all post-secondary courses attempted (excluding graduate courses)
  • Pre-pharmacy curriculum GPA
  • Pre-pharmacy science and mathematics GPA

All courses listed in the pre-pharmacy curriculum subject listing must be completed with a minimum grade of "C." In order to be considered for admission to the professional program, the minimum cumulative, pre-pharmacy, and pre-pharmacy science and mathematics grade point averages are 2.75. Attaining these minimums does not guarantee consideration , and specific minimums may be modified depending on the size of the applicant pool.

Applications for admissions are evaluated based upon grades earned through the fall semester proceeding the term for which the student is applying. Students cannot use the spring or summer terms to repeat grades earned through the fall semester proceeding the term for which they are applying. So, if a student earns a "D" or "F" in a pre-pharmacy course in the fall of 2014 they are denied admission for the fall of 2015.

Students are required to have completed all pre-pharmacy courses in the spring term proceeding the intended start date. For example, students applying to enter the SOP in the fall of 2015 must complete all pre-pharmacy courses in the spring of 2014.

Students who have a total of five or more repeated courses within the pre-pharmacy curriculum will not be considered for admission to the program.

Attaining these minimums does not guarantee consideration, and specific minimums may be modified depending on the size of the applicant pool.
