Welcome to the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (COPHS)

Thank you for visiting our website! Health care is one of the most rewarding and popular majors these days. Applicants should apply early so they get a completed application into the Office of Admissions no later than Nov. 1. We recommend that applicants have a strong foundation in science and math courses in high school. Test scores, class ranking, academic achievement and extracurricular activities are all factors that will determine admission.
