The curriculum offered by the School of Pharmacy at The University of Montana -Missoula consists of a six-year program leading to the entry-level Doctor of Pharmacy degree. By earning the Associate of Science degree as prescribed, students will be academically prepared to enter the professional pharmacy program.
The application deadline for general admissions is March 1 of the year for which admission is requested. Admission to The University of Montana – Missoula does not guarantee admission to the Professional Pharmacy Program.
