Transfer Pathway to Wingate University School of Pharmacy

The Wingate University School of Pharmacy and Blue Ridge Community College have agreed to partner in an effort to outline a specific pathway for students to obtain an Associate in Science Degree that also meets the prerequisite coursework requirements for application to the Wingate University School of Pharmacy. Completion of the Associate in Science degree or the listed courses does not guarantee admission to Wingate University School of Pharmacy. Acceptance into Wingate University School of Pharmacy is competitive based grades from individual courses listed below, the pharmacy school assessment test (PCAT) scores, and a personal interview. 

The Wingate School of Pharmacy recognizes online courses as long as labs are completed in a seated classroom section. COM 231 may not be taken online. 

The courses listed are required in order to apply for admission to Wingate University School of Pharmacy. The courses listed will satisfy Blue Ridge Community College requirements for the Associate in Science degree. Other courses may be used to complete the Associate in Science degree but may not meet the requirements for application to Wingate University School of Pharmacy. All pharmacy prerequisites must be completed by the end of Spring Semester of the year in which pharmacy school enrollment is requested. 

Students may be required to take one or more developmental courses as a result of pre-enrollment placement tests; therefore, the student may need more than the minimum number of semester hours listed for graduation. Developmental courses for this program may include Readiness Level Reading, English, and/or Math and other courses in developmental Reading, English, Math, Biology and Chemistry. For more information on developmental courses,speak to your program advisor. 

For more detailed information about the Pharmacy pathway, contact the Dean for Arts and Sciences or the College Transfer Coordinator in the Student Services Department or visit the Wingate Pharmacy webpage.
