Freshman to Pharmacy Degree (PharmD) in Six Years

After successful completion of a rigorous course of study based on RCC's AS in Math and Science - General Studies Track at RCC, qualified students can earn a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree in just four years from The University at Buffalo.

Two (or more) qualified RCC graduates will be admitted each year into the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Buffalo is part of the State University of New York (SUNY), and offers a very cost effective educational value.

"This partnership is an incredible opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career as a pharmacist and saves the student and family a great deal of money."


Students should express their intent to enroll in the program during their first year at RCC to ensure they complete the correct sequence of courses and qualify for this 2+4 program. Student must maintain a 3.5 GPA.

Students in the program are supported by a designated RCC academic advisor who works specifically with pre-PharmD students.
