Students interested in a career in community, hospital or industrial pharmacy can earn at UNO the 90-plus semester hours of pre-pharmacy education required to support application to an accredited college of pharmacy, where they would complete undergraduate and professional education. The minimum requirements for admission to the first professional year at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) College of Pharmacy are below. Prerequisites vary among colleges of pharmacy, and admission is highly competitive. Students should seek to progress toward a UNO degree while working on pre-pharmacy requirements to avoid unnecessary delay in graduation.
