Doctor of Pharmacy

Missouri State collaborates with the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) School of Pharmacy (SOP), which offers the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree through the UMKC School of Pharmacy at Missouri State University, located in Brick City, Building #1 downtown Springfield, MO.

The UMKC SOP has campus sites in Kansas City, Columbia and Springfield. Applicants are able to list their preferred campus site for admission. UMKC will admit 95 students to the Kansas City campus, 30 to the Springfield-MSU site, and 30 to the Columbia-Mizzou site. High grades (specifically in the science & math courses), high PCAT scores, pharmacy experience and applying early in the application process will better enhance applicant’s admission into the PharmD program, and more specifically into the applicant’s first choice of campus site.

Generally, a minimum of approximately 60 hours of prerequisites needed for admission into a PharmD program. Applicants typically take two or more years to complete their prerequisites in order to improve their cumulative and science/math grade point averages for competitive entry.
