Are You Eligible for a Pre-Pharmacy Guaranteed Seat?

A program has been instituted that allows a freshman student the opportunity to apply and potentially be converted to a pre-pharmacy guaranteed seat (PPGS) contract. This would mean, if offered, you would be entering your sophomore year as a PPGS student.

Eligible freshman students must apply by Friday, June 7, 2019, to convert to a pre-pharmacy guaranteed seat. After receiving grades at the end of the spring 2019 semester, students must have a prerequisite and overall GPA minimum of 3.0. Additionally, you must have grades of 2.0 or higher in all prerequisite courses. If you meet this criteria, you should apply.

If you do not meet this criteria, please note you still have an opportunity to apply in January 2020. The academic criteria is different in the regular application cycle, so don’t count yourself out.

All students must take the PCAT before January 2020.

If you are eligible to apply, please contact Dr. Julie Olenak (julie.olenak@wilkes.edu) for the application specific to freshman students.  The application requires three references. The application includes a form for your references to complete and you may want to ask before the semester ends.
