Early Assurance Program

For students who have identified early on an intended path in pharmacy, UB’s pharmacy school offers a special Early Assurance Program. This unique program affords students the chance to complete additional studies and pursue other interests free of the pressures of the admissions process.

Incoming first-year students (freshmen) entering UB directly from high school who indicate pharmacy as their major can be automatically admitted into the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree program through the prestigious Early Assurance (EA) Program. Students must maintain a 3.0 prerequisite GPA, successfully complete an interview and adhere to all program requirements.
