In addition to meeting UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS students applying for admission for the program must meet the admission regulations of the School.
Admissions will normally be to the first year of pharmacy studies. In some circumstances, however, admission with advanced standing may be offered.
Entry to the School is competitive for a limited number of placements. Priority is given to applicants who are bona fide residents of this province and who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents. The final decision on admission rests with the Admissions Committee of the School.
The Admissions Committee considers each applicant's academic background and information on the applicant's personal characteristics and achievements as given by the applicant and by referees' reports. Personal interviews, which may include both a written and oral component, may be required.
The School of Pharmacy does not require criminal record checks or other screening procedures as a condition of admission to its program. However, students should be aware that such record checks or other screening procedures may be required by agencies used by the University for clinical or structured practice experiences related to academic course assignments necessary for graduation. Such agencies may refuse to accept students on the basis of information contained in the record check or other screening procedure thus preventing the student from completing a practice experience or other clinical requirement. As a result, such students may not be eligible for promotion or graduation.
It is the students’ responsibility to have such procedures completed as required and at their own expense.
The screening procedures of any given agency may change from time to time and are beyond the control of the University.
