XU Pre-Pharmacy Program
Students that come to Xavier, if their intent is to enroll as freshmen at Xavier, and then transition to the College of Pharmacy, we have a program that is a 57 credit hour program that normally takes two years for students. That is prerequisite courses for the Doctor of Pharmacy program. We have a lot of students that will transfer at all different points in that. You know, we have some students that may have done only a semester at another institution that come in. And then we have others who have done most of their prerequisite work at another institution, but they're coming in right towards the end, because they have a couple of more courses that they want to pick up.
It's very common for us to have students that want to finish their Theology requirement and their Health Ethics requirement here in Xavier, since a lot of other institutions don't offer equivalent courses. Of course, appeal is when they don't have the exact credit for the course that's required. But we believe that they have the content that is necessary. And so we assist those students in making that appeal so that we can get that approved. Our program of advising is really aimed at helping all students you know, reach the goals that they've set for themselves when they come through the door. And so we really start with our advising by getting to know our students and really discussing with them, What their academic plan is? What their career plans are? So that we can really help tailor their program to what they want to eventually do. And we really get to know each student quite well within the Pre-Pharmacy program because of our constant contact with the students. And you know, really the goal is to help them reach, you know, the goals that they've set for themselves,
Students to join PPSA to better connect with students in the College of Pharmacy. Students who have gone through the track that they are currently on-- get some mentors-- get an understanding of what it's like to transition from undergrad to a graduate program such as the College of Pharmacy.
