  • A four-year baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, and a combined GPA of 3.0 in the last 90 quarter hours of graded undergraduate work on the first baccalaureate degree and all work completed thereafter are required by Oregon State Univeristy for graduate program admission.
  • We welcome applications from a variety of science and engineering majors. Successful students have entered the program with Bachelors degrees in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Molecular Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Marine Biology, Microbiology, and pre-medical and pre-health sciences degrees, among others.
  • Applicants to the Pharmaceutical Sciences graduate program should have a GRE score that ranks at or above the 50th percentile in each category. However, we utilize a wholistic application review that takes into account multiple factors including field of interest when making admissions decisions.
  • Applicants with a foreign BPharm degree without research experience are generally not competitive for our program.
  • Once a completed application is received by the OSU Office of Admissions, it is forwarded to the College of Pharmacy Graduate Studies Committee for review by committee. Individual faculty members do not independently accept students into our program.
