Does anyone know?
I don't think I've ever heard of a pharmacy school that doesn't accept community college credits.
I'm pretty sure all pharmacy schools will accept credits from any accredited college as long as the course is comparable.
Most, if not all, PharmD schools accept CC credits, however I would recommend in not taking too much CC classes esp. science classes.
Try to take a majority of your classes at a university because it looks better on the transcript, even if the nearby CC is better academically than the state university, like mine is.
Oregon State University doesn't accept any community college/city college courses as pre-requisites. At least that's what they told me. I received my BS in biology two years ago but didn't take microbiology or anatomy & physiology. I'm taking them now at a city college, but could not apply to OSU because of it's stipulation.
The University of Michigan is usually pretty hard on CC or JC applicants, but I don't think I would say that they "won't accept JC credits".
I think the issue is probably not that they dont take CC credits.. but that they don't take 100 and 200 level classes. I have heard of some schools that require certain classes to be in upper level classes, which I 'think' you can only get at a college/university.
I'm in a state university right now, but fulfilling my writting prereqs(2 classes) at a CC over the summer. All my other classes beside those 2 writting classes will be taken at a major university. Will pharmacy schools look too much into those writting classes? since they're not really core science classes.
I think the only way to get an answer to your question is to ask the schools that you want to apply to.
Also, by "writting" classes do you mean your English credits or the technical writing pre-req?
Writing is spelled w-r-i-t-i-n-g.
Doh, I always spell "writing" wrong for some reason. Yea, I meant my english credits.
One of the funniest stongbad videos is "english paper". It's got a pretty funny line about misspelling "english".
Let's hope that link works.
just go to www.assist.org you can find out what schools transfer what credits.
Off topic....but this is my favorite.
This is not exactly true for those of of you applying to Oregon State. I applied with lots of CC science courses and was all right. The only pre-reqs they don't accept from a community college are the Microbiology, physiology, and biochemistry sequences.
Anyway, here is the link to the pre-reqs at Oregon State:
