College of Pharmacy

Currently, the Pharmacy graduate program offers two PhD degrees, one in Pharmacy with specializations in Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, and Toxicology, and one in Pharmacology.  All the information and forms you need are available on the Graduate School Website, as well as the Graduate Catalog provided at this website.

Our Program is a Doctoral Program and students accepted for admission have applied for Ph.D. training.  Students with a BS in a related field, BPharm, PharmD or MS degree can apply for the Ph.D. program.  There is no MS degree in the Graduate Program in Pharmacy at ULM.  Graduates from our program receive employment in both academia and industry. 

The deadline for Fall semester admission is March 1 of each year and the deadline for Spring semester admission is September 1 of each year.  Your chances for admission are best if you submit your application as early as possible prior to the deadline.  If you do not get accepted into the Program for the semester that you applied, we will keep your application active for a period of one year.  This process is automatic, and you are not required to submit additional documents in order to keep your application active.  Although there are no guarantees, it is very possible for a student not selected the first semester they apply, to be selected to join the Program the following semester. 

The graduate students accepted into the Program are eligible for a graduate assistantship and tuition waiver to support their living expenses.  You are encouraged to submit an assistantship request form, letter of purpose and letters of recommendation along with your application. 

The ULM Institutional code needed to forward score results such as GRE, TOFEL, and WES evaluated transcripts to the Graduate School is 6482.  There is no Departmental code that is required.  Once your application package is complete, the Graduate School will forward your application to our School for faculty review.  If a faculty member is impressed with a highly ranked applicant, that faculty member will extend an invitation to join their laboratory. If the applicant accepts the invitation, the paperwork for admission is initiated.
