PRE-PHARMACY Students participating in this program who complete a minimum of 60 credits will be eligible to apply to any of the 139 pharmacy schools across the U.S. After completing the first semester, students should begin to think about which that are accredited with full or candidate status pharmacy school(s) they would like to apply to, and look up the prerequisite coursework to ensure it is included in the undergraduate curriculum.

For these students, courses selected after the freshman year will depend upon the student’s final choice of major.

NYCC 3+3 ACCELERATED CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE, NYCC 4+3 CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE Gannon University, in affiliation with New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) located in Seneca Falls, New York, offers two programs for qualified students to earn a bachelor’s degree from Gannon University and a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree from NYCC. The 3+3 accelerated program grants highly motivated and academically strong students an opportunity to matriculate to NYCC after completing only three years of undergraduate study at Gannon University. Successful completion of the first year of chiropractic school at NYCC will allow students in the 3+3 accelerated program to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in health science from Gannon University. The majority of students complete the traditional 4+3 program, which allows students to complete a four-year bachelor’s degree prior to attending NYCC. Qualified students enrolled in these programs will be conditionally guaranteed an interview with NYCC, providing these students with an advantage over students from other institutions at the time of application. Participation in either program does not restrict students’ ability to apply to other chiropractic schools. GU Undergraduate Entry Requirements • Completion of four years of science courses at the high school level (biology and chemistry courses are required, while physics is highly recommended) • Completion of four years of math courses at the high school level • Cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale • Class rank in the top 25% of high school class
