  • How can I spend my third and fourth years of pharmacy school in the U.Va. Division?

    All VCU School of Pharmacy students attend class on the MCV Campus in Richmond during the first two years of the Pharm.D. program. During the initial interview process, you will be asked if you are interested in spending the last two years of the program at one of the satellite campuses.

    Up to 10 students are allowed to transfer to the Charlottesville campus at the end of the second year, and priority is given to students who already have indicated that they wish to go there. If openings remain available, requests will be taken during the P2 year for additional students to transfer. If more than 10 students apply for the U.Va. Division, the final selection of students will be made by the dean. If you are on academic probation, you are not allowed to transfer to a satellite campus.
