Matriculation Policies

Students enrolled in the Doctor of Pharmacy program are required to fulfill the following:

  • Submit the required non-refundable admissions deposit
  • Submit a signed honor code form indicating the student has received, read and agrees to the provisions of the honor code of the Campbell University College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences.
  • Submit original transcripts from each college or university where any coursework was completed (undergraduate, graduate, professional, etc.) to the Office of Admissions & Student Affairs prior to the beginning of classes. It is strongly preferred that transcripts are sent at the end of each semester during the application process.
  • Complete all prerequisite coursework prior to matriculation with official transcripts submitted as mentioned above.
  • Complete the required vaccination and immunization requirements, including the Hepatitis A series, Hepatitis B series, varicella immunity, and various other required immunizations. The Hepatitis A series is delivered in two injections over a six month period. The Hepatitis B series is delivered in three injections over a six month period.
  • Submit to a criminal background check through PharmCAS and Certiphi Application Station.
    • Applicants are required to self-disclose any misdemeanors and felony convictions, other than minor traffic violations – nondisclosure or falsification may lead to dismissal and disclosure may prevent enrollment
      • Including deferred adjudications
  • Submit to scheduled and random substance abuse screens
  • Complete all programmatic standards as required by the College
  • Participate in online and on-campus orientation

Note: You are obligated to report any charges resulting in conviction including plea bargains, fines paid to lower charges, etc. You are also required to report any charges pending adjudication (i.e., have not been finalized by the courts). Convictions under the age of 18 may appear on your criminal background check.

Charges and convictions will not automatically prevent you from entering a professional health program at Campbell University; but all charges and convictions will appear on your criminal background check, so these must be disclosed. Failure to disclose any convictions may result in reconsideration of a student’s admissions status.

Convictions that occur at any time (prior to or after matriculation) may prevent clinical placements and, therefore, successful completion of health programs.
