Pre-Pharmacy Option

The pre-pharmacy student normally spends two years at West Georgia before transferring to the pharmacy school of his or her choice.  Because requirements vary at pharmacy schools, the student must seek proper advisement.  Listed below are course requirements for admission to the University of Georgia and Mercer University, the two pharmacy schools most frequently chosen by students completing the pre-pharmacy program at West Georgia.
