Graduation Requirements

All requirements for graduation with a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree must be completed within seven years of initial enrollment in the Pre-Pharmacy Program or within six years in the Professional Program for transfer students. When this is not the case, the complete academic records of the student will be subject to review by the faculty to determine whether the student will be allowed to continue in the program.

During the semester prior to graduation, students must file an Intent to Graduate Form with the Office of the Registrar.

* Texas Southern University students that have graduated are required to reapply for admission to the university through Undergraduate Admissions.
