Pre-pharmacy 3+1 Option

Pre-pharmacy biomedical sciences students who are interested in obtaining a Doctor of Pharmacy degree can fast-track their education thanks to a collaborative program between MSU and Sullivan University. Students who qualify for the program will complete their first three years of courses at MSU, then begin their first year of the doctoral program at Sullivan. At the end of the year, the credits they've earned in the program will reverse transfer to MSU, and the student will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences.
