Overview of the SBU-UB Dual Admit Program in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
Students accepted into this competitive program have a conditional seat waiting for them at the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences after attending St. Bonaventure University for three years. The program is completed with an additional four years at the University at Buffalo leading to both a BS and a PharmD degree. Up to three students are accepted each year.
Accepted students receive a conditional letter of admission to the University at Buffalo upon entering the program at St. Bonaventure University. The acceptance is conditional in that academic, comportment, and procedural requirements must be maintained while at St. Bonaventure in order to move on to the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. Requirements are detailed in writing when a conditional acceptance is offered.
In Phase I of the program, students spend three years at St. Bonaventure University. A major in Biology is required. There is an option of spending the fourth year of the program at St. Bonaventure University to complete a baccalaureate degree. This will necessarily extend the length of the program to eight years.
