Pharmacy majors should note that health care is a rapidly changing field. To remain current with changes occurring in the practice of pharmacy, the academic program is subject to periodic revision of curricular content and requirements. Although overall program length will not be affected, students currently enrolled at the time of such revision will be held responsible for any new requirements. Opportunity to meet any new requirements will be provided within the constraints of the standard  academic calendar. This policy is necessary to assure that graduates are well prepared to assume a progressive pharmacy practice in a dynamic health care environment. Students should consult with their advisors on a frequent basis to assure that current degree requirements are met.
