A transfer applicant is defined as an individual who is currently enrolled in the professional year curriculum of a PharmD program at an ACPE affiliated school or college of pharmacy, or a school or college of pharmacy which was accredited within the previous year.

Transfer applicants must meet the same admission requirements as individuals applying for initial admission into the professional program. Additionally, transfer applicants must be in good standing at their last pharmacy school attended (i.e., eligible to return) and are expected to be academically competitive.
