    On this website of theirs http://www.uic.edu/ucat/catalog/PM.html#f it says:

    Refusal of Further Registration

    A student will be denied further registration under any of the following conditions:

    A student is 10 or more grade points (hours down) below a 2.00/4.00 CGPA for courses completed at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
    A student remains on probation for two consecutive semesters (excluding summer semester) and fails to remove himself/herself from probation status after the second semester.
    If a student does not obtain a passing grade after taking core courses or required clerkship courses twice.
    Any student who does not have and maintain a valid Pharmacy Technician License may be refused further registration in the program and will not be eligible to take any course with an experiential component.

    If selected for admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the student will sign a document, which indicates a willingness to comply with the following when classes begin in August:

    To provide record of immunizations including inoculation against hepatitis-B, Tetanus, and PPD/TB test (annually);
    To have applied for, or maintain a pharmacy technician license (annually);
    To provide one's own transportation to off-campus clerkship sites;
    To participate and fulfill HIPAA requirements (annually); and
    Other possible immunizations and/or requirements that may be required as needed.
    Failure to comply with the conditions above will result in refusal of further registration for course work.


    You MUST be a technician to enter the pharmacy program? That seems kind of ridiculous and redundant if that's the case. I've never seen a school with this requirement before; it's not explicitly stated anywhere either in an obvious way on the main website.

    OOPS nevermind it says that's for the high school guaranteed program. I can't delete my thread now... but even then - why do you think they require it? Makes sure people have pharmacy experience prior to matriculation?

      Illinois does not have an intern license. So, for experential programs you will need the pharmacy tech license. You won't need the license until the Spring semester of P1 year. Every pharmacy school I knows of either requires an intern license or a tech license.
      Tech license require is for current students. It has nothing to do with the GPPA program.

        Well, the pharm tech license is different than a pharm tech certification where one would have to take the PTCB to quality. The pharm tech license in IL one just pays $40 to the state so that they are registered as a pharm tech and this can be w/ or w/o certification right??

        That's what I always thought of it...

          Yup, that's all you need to do.
          It's not a big deal. The state of Illinois does not care if you are certified or not certified pharmacy tech. They don't ask for that information.
