- What is the deadline to apply?
January 7, 2019, is the deadline in which to apply to the program each year. Students typically apply midway through their sophomore year or junior year.
- Is there a fee to apply?
Yes, the application fee is $125 for the pharmacy program. There is also a $35 fee for the transfer students to apply to NDSU.
- Do I have to send transcripts?
Transfer students must request official transcripts be sent to our college, and to the NDSU Office of Registration & Records, by the January 7 deadline . We strongly encourage you to send them prior to the deadline date.
If you are an NDSU student and you sent transcripts from other universities when you first applied to NDSU, we will have access to them so you do not have to resend them.
- Do I pay the pharmacy application fee before I complete the application?
No. We ask that you submit the application first. Then you will pay the $125 application fee. You may bring the fee to the Dean’s Office (Sudro 123) or send it through the mail to: NDSU College of Health Professions, Attn: Jamie Berg, Dept 2650, PO Box 6050, Fargo ND 58108.
- What if I submit the application and then need to correct something?
Contact Jamie Berg with any changes. However, please make sure there are not multiple corrections. Make sure your application is filled out correctly before you submit it.
- Do I need a special GPA to apply?
Traditional applicants must have an overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above from all colleges/universities attended in order to apply to the program.
- Do I need to take all of the courses listed on the application?
Yes. As it states on the application, “All courses on this list are required. Therefore, if you are lacking any coursework on this Academic Record Course list, you would not be eligible to apply this year.”
- How do I list AP classes (with a grade of Pass) on the application?
The same as you would for the other college courses but you do not have to include the college name.
- How do I list PSEO or Dual Credit courses that I took while in high school?
The same as you would for the other college courses. You must include the name of the college that awarded the grade and the year that the class was actually taken (not the year it transferred to NDSU).
