This statement only applies to students for whom English is a second language. If a student has completed two years of undergraduate work in an accredited college or university in the United States, he/she does not have to take the TOEFL, but may choose to do so to demonstrate greater proficiency. This does not include students who go to a local community college to take ESL.
All foreign transcripts must first be evaluated by an accredited service before they can be reviewed by SU. We prefer organizations who are members of NACES.
The letters of reference can be from professors, health care providers, or other professionals with whom the student has interacted. A pharmacist is not required if you have not worked with one. You may have any combination of the allowed references.
Once an application is reviewed and meets given criteria, an applicant may receive an interview invitation. The interview with the applicant is conducted by a single Faculty member and a current Pharmacy student, when possible. Tours are also given at time of interview.
