BIOL 220/BIOL 220L and BIOL 221/BIOL 221L must be completed at the same institution for transfer.


 CHEM 242L and PHYS 211L are recommended to be taken with the corresponding lecture courses. However, these laboratory courses are not required as part of the North Dakota State University's School of Pharmacy pre-professional curriculum.

This curriculum has been developed based on the suggested pre-professional curriculum of North Dakota State University's School of Pharmacy. Students planning to transfer to NDSU should regularly check the School of Pharmacy's most current curriculum. Students planning to transfer to a pharmacy school other than NDSU should refer to that institution's catalog and modify this curriculum accordingly.
