Connect with Student Services

Within a welcoming, inclusive, and respectful environment, we co-create the conditions to prepare, enroll, support, and empower competent and transformative future pharmacists.

Visit Us

We have multiple campus visit options for students to learn more about pharmacy careers and what the University of Minnesota has to offer!

We encourage all students to attend Preview Day but offer Information Sessions as an alternative to learn more about the program. Preview Days are offered on both both campuses every spring and fall semester.  They include a pharmacy careers activity, admissions overview, tour of the College and ITV demonstration.  Fill out this form to start receiving communications on upcoming offerings.
