A pipeline to your pharmacy degree

SFA has partnered with two Texas universities to create “pipeline programs” for Lumberjacks enrolled in SFA’s pre-pharmacy program.

Students enrolled in these programs begin their studies at SFA, where they complete prerequisites for pharmacy school. After completing their pre-pharmacy coursework, they transfer to the University of Houston or The University of Texas at Tyler to complete their Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

University of Houston – SFA Pre-Pharmacy Co-Op Program

Through this unique partnership between SFA and the University of Houston College of Pharmacy, students fulfill their pharmacy prerequisites at SFA and then transfer to UH to finish their Pharm.D. degree.

To be accepted into the program, you’ll need to submit the following:

  • A completed application packet
  • Official high school and college transcripts
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • A personal statement

To be considered for the program, you’ll need GPA of 3.2 or higher. Learn more about the UH-SFA co-op program.

University of Texas at Tyler Pharm.D. program

Begin your pharmacy studies at SFA and transfer to the Fisch College of Pharmacy at UT Tyler.
