The two pre-pharmacy or pre-professional years are at the entry-level of the curriculum. After successful completion of pre-pharmacy courses, students may apply for admission to the professional program leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Pharmacy and Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degrees.
Applicants to pre-pharmacy studies should contact the LAU Admissions Office and follow the University regular undergraduate application process. Eligible applicants include students who have been admitted to LAU, or others who hold an academic degree (e.g., B.A., B.S.) of different majors or course of study.
