Pre-Pharmacy Grade Point Average (PPGPA)
The preferred minimum pre-pharmacy grade point average required for application consideration is 3.000.
Grades below “C” are not accepted.
The grade point average is calculated using the following formula: Sum of the Grade Points/Total #SCH (semester credit hours).

The Pre-Pharmacy grade point average is calculated with the last grade earned* for each course taken, multiplied by the number of semester credit hours (SCH), using the following scale:
A = 4.0 x #SCH = Grade Points
B = 3.0 X #SCH = Grade Points
C= 2.0 X #SCH = Grade Points
D = 1.0 X #SCH = Grade Points
F = 0.0 x #SCH = Grade Points
*For example, if you received a grade of “C” the first time you completed organic chemistry then repeated the course with a grade of “A”, we disregard the “C” and calculate PPGPA using the “A”. This process allows students to demonstrate competency in a course.
Please note: Courses older than seven years require approval.
