- Be in good academic and disciplinary standing at the transferring institution.
- Supply a letter of recommendation and permission from the chief executive officer or designee of the transferring institution.

- Provide a letter explaining in detail why the transfer is being required including appropriate documentation that substantiates the reason.
- Meet all current admissions requirements and standards of the College of Pharmacy.
- Supply official transcripts of all collegiate work completed, including that taken at the transferring institution.
- Supply course outlines for all Pharmacy coursework for which advanced standing credit is desired.
- Submit the appropriate application materials. Decisions on transfer applications are made by the Admissions Committee in cooperation with the Office of Academic Affairs.
Transfer credit will only be granted for courses passed with a "C" or better (must achieve passing score in a Pass/Fail course) and taken in a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
Additional factors we consider: available space, admissions standards, the reason for the transfer request, course equivalencies, the applicant's personal attributes, etc.
