As a state-assisted institution, preference will be given to in-state applicants. In-state applicants are defined as South Carolina residents and any non-South Carolina residents attending a South Carolina college or university. In-state status as defined here only applies to the admission process. Residency for the purpose of tuition will be based upon residency requirements as outlined by MUSC. The MUSC College of Pharmacy considers a limited number of international applicants to the doctor of pharmacy program who have completed at least a 5-year bachelor of science in pharmacy degree and when there is a written agreement between the MUSC College of Pharmacy and an international sponsoring university, government, or agency (International Partnership Program).
