DETAILED INFORMATION

The College of Pharmacy (COP) at Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, the accrediting agency for College of Pharmacy in the United States, and is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. The COP offers the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree, which is a 2 + 4 program. Students must complete 2 years of pre-professional study, which includes general education courses as well as prescriptive courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and math. This is followed by 4 years in the COP at SWOSU in the professional Pharm.D. program, which includes didactic and experiential courses in the pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacy practice as well as a final year of full-time structured advanced pharmacy practice experiences at off-campus pharmacy practice sites.
Admission to the Pharm.D. program is competitive. The Admissions Committee rely heavily on interview criteria, objective data, particularly performance in required math & science courses, overall GPA, PCAT scores, and ACT or SAT scores are significant. Students are admitted to the professional Pharm.D. program in the Fall and Spring. Approximately eighty-five students are admitted to the professional Pharm.D. program each year. Consideration is given to qualified applicants from Oklahoma and states that border Oklahoma and to other qualified citizens or permanent residents of the United States who complete their pre-pharmacy program at SWOSU. The primary mission of SWOSU and the COP is teaching.
Faculty in the COP provide instruction in all the courses in the professional Pharm.D. program. Most didactic classes have approximately 60 students, while laboratory classes taught within the COP usually have less than 20 students. Graduates of the COP at SWOSU continue to perform above average on the NAPLEX, the national licensing examination for pharmacy. The COP at SWOSU has more than 5000 alumni. Many are leaders in their community, while numerous alumni have attained state, regional, national and international recognition.
