The University College of Pharmacy will conduct criminal background checks on all applicants accepted for admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy professional program.
Currently, the UGA College of Pharmacy requires all students to be immunized against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), Tetanus (Td / Tdap), Hepatitis B and Varicella Zoster (chicken pox). Students must also be tested annually for tuberculosis exposure. These requirements are necessary since students will participate in introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences throughout their 4 years in the College of Pharmacy.
Requests for scholarships and loans are handled through the University of Georgia Financial Aid Office. The office is open year-round (with the exception of holidays), and the hours of operation are 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about financial aid and eligibility, you may call the Financial Aid Office at 706-542-6147 or visit http://www.uga.edu/osfa/.
