Admission to the College
The University of Toledo is committed to a policy of equal opportunity in education, employment, membership and contracts, and no differentiation will be made based on race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status or the presence of a disability. The University will take affirmative action as required by federal or state law.
Direct-from-High School Students
The minimum criteria for Direct-from-High School students are:
- a high school grade point average (GPA) of 2.50 –OR-
- a composite ACT of 20 -OR-
- SAT 1030 (test dates March 2016 and later).
All undergraduate students in the CPPS will be considered pre-professional division students until admitted to the professional divisions of the Pharm.D. or B.S.P.S. programs. For the entry-level Pharm.D. and the four-year B.S.P.S. programs, the CPPS limits student enrollment into the professional division (third year or P1 year) in accordance with its facilities.
Academically exceptional high school graduates may be offered contingent admission to the professional division of the Pharm.D. or the B.S.P.S. programs. Automatic admission to the P1 year of the curriculum will be contingent on successful completion of the pre-professional curriculum, while meeting specific standards.
Academically exceptional first-year students who are enrolled at UT may be offered early admission to the professional division of the Pharm.D. program. Automatic admission to the P1 year will be contingent on successful completion of the pre-professional curriculum while meeting specific standards.
In order for a student to change from another college within The University of Toledo to the CPPS, the student must have a UT cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.7 and be in good standing at the University.
In order for a student to transfer from other Ohio universities into the pre-professional division of any of the baccalaureate programs of the CPPS, the student must have a higher education cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.7 (this is based on all letter grades attained at all institutions of higher learning and uses the point average scale of A equaling 4 points), be in good standing at the university, and be eligible to return. The student may be required to take placement tests in chemistry and/or math. Students with course work from non-Ohio institutions will be evaluated on an individual basis. The student may be asked to supply course descriptions and syllabi so that course equivalencies can be determined.
Transfer students who wish to apply to the professional division of the Pharm.D. program are required to submit a PharmCAS application, UT CPPS supplemental application, and meet all application and matriculation qualifications. Please see the UT CPPS PharmCAS web directory or contact an academic adviser for more information.
Transfer students wishing to enroll in the BSPS program may be eligible to apply directly into the professional division. Contact an academic adviser for more information.
Applicants with GED scores equal to or greater than 170 for each of the four (4) subject scores will be eligible for admission into the CPPS.
College Level Examination Program Credit (CLEP)

Credits earned in the natural sciences and mathematics section of the CLEP examination will count toward the degree as free electives, but do not replace the requirement for any specific course in biology, chemistry, physics or mathematics. Credits earned with other sections of the CLEP examination will count only toward meeting other core requirements.
