Associate in Science (Transfer)

As a pharmacist, you will do more than dispense medicine. You’ll help people use prescription medication safely and for maximum benefit. ICC prepares you for this growing career with classes taught by expert instructors and tuition that won’t break the bank. Make ICC your SMART choice.

Admission requirements to colleges of pharmacy vary considerably so it is important to research requirements for the pharmacy school of choice. Acceptance into a college of pharmacy is extremely competitive. Entrance into a college of pharmacy directly from ICC is possible; an alternative would be to receive a baccalaureate degree before applying to pharmacy college.
