The Wingate University School of Pharmacy and Richmond Community College have agreed to partner in an effort to outline a specific pathway for students to obtain an Associate in Science degree that also meets the prerequisite coursework requirements for application to the Wingate University School of Pharmacy.
Students seeking entry into the Wingate University School of Pharmacy will meet all prerequisite course requirements for application by completing this Associate in Science Degree – Pre-Pharmacy Pathway. Additionally, this curriculum adheres to the North Carolina Community College System guidelines for an Associate in Science degree. Since admission into the Wingate School of Pharmacy is not guaranteed, if a student is not admitted to the Wingate University School of Pharmacy, the Associate of Science degree can also be used to transfer to a bachelor degree program.
NOTE: The Pharmacy Pathway requires students to complete over 70 credit hours. Students completing these courses will qualify for an Associate’s in Science (60-61 credit hours). It is possible, the student will be responsible for the remaining hours. Please discuss with your advisor about financial aid opportunities for required pathway hours beyond the associate’s.
