Policy on Transfer Applicants and Advanced Standing
In addition to submitting the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy Application for Admission, a student wishing to transfer from another ACPE accredited College or School of Pharmacy shall submit:
- A letter of request to the Dean stating the reason(s) for the transfer
- A transcript and course description of all courses taken at his/her previous College or School of Pharmacy
- A letter from the Dean of his/her previous institution stating the applicant’s academic standing and the Dean’s recommendation or other comments
- It is the policy of Sullivan University College of Pharmacy not to transfer more than twenty five percent (25%) of the coursework from a transfer applicant’s previous college or school of pharmacy unless there are very special circumstances approved by the Dean of the College of Pharmacy.
Upon receipt of this information, the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs and Assessment will review the transfer request and determine eligibility and course equivalency. If the previous coursework is found equivalent to courses at Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and if a grade of “C” or better has been earned in the courses taken at the previous institution, they may recommend to the Dean of the College of Pharmacy that a waiver and advanced standing be granted to the transfer applicant. The decision to accept a transfer student is made by the Dean of the College of Pharmacy.
It is congruent with the Mission and Vision of the College of Pharmacy to provide qualified students an opportunity to pursue a degree in pharmacy. Therefore, all applicants have an equal chance to seek admission into our program,
