If accepted into the Save-A-Seat program you will not need to compete for admission. If you remain committed to the program and are successful in maintaining eligibility you can focus on taking advantage of all learning opportunities during your undergraduate education. If you do not qualify at this time for the Save-A-Seat program you may continue working on your pre-pharmacy curriculum as an undergraduate student. We encourage all applicants to continue working with pharmacy pre-health advisor, who can help you develop a plan to gain admission to WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences with the normal admission cycle.
