Bachelor in Applied Health Science to Pharm.D. Degree Track

Bowling Green State University has partnered with University of Findlay’s College of Pharmacy to establish the Bachelor's to Pharm.D. degree program, which will enable a student to be dual enrolled at both BGSU and University of Findlay during their training. As part of their dual enrollment, students will earn a Bachelor of Applied Health Science degree from BGSU, then a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from University of Findlay two years later.

This new dual enrollment track expands career options for BGSU students, while providing them a BGSU undergraduate experience and value. Also consistent with the mission of BGSU’s College of Health and Human Services, it will contribute to the public good by providing opportunities for students to enter a career field that is predicted to have steady growth in Ohio and in the U.S.

Students enter the Bachelor’s to Pharm.D. degree program via one of three ways:

  • Direct admission from high school for qualified students
  • Early assurance admission for current first-year BGSU students
  • Admission directly into the professional program at the University of Findlay

For adequately prepared students who wish to maintain the six-year timeline to a doctorate, the time to a baccalaureate degree is 3.5 to 4 years. BGSU program students may participate in pre-pharmacy professional development opportunities available at UF. Following matriculation into the “P3” year of the pharmacy program, students will be co-enrolled at BGSU and UF through their completion of the bachelor’s of applied health science pre-pharmacy specialization.


University of Findlay School of Pharmacy admission requirements:

  • Four years of high school English, math and science.
  • ACT composite score of 23 or higher or new SAT composite score of 1150 or higher 
  • High school GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (with strength in math, science, honors, AP and college courses)
  • Additional UF requirements

University of Findlay’s admissions staff and faculty representatives will visit the BGSU campus to meet with prospective students to discuss the College of Pharmacy, entrance requirements, financial aid and other related enrollment information regarding the program.

To qualify for the pharmacy dual admission program, students must meet both university’s admission criteria.
