The Accelerated Program is only for qualified Chemistry (BA) majors who have been accepted into the 3+4 College of Science and Health pre-professional program in pharmacy in conjunction with Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS). In order to pursue the pre-pharmacy track, a student must secure approval from the College of Science and Health's pre-health advisor and Pre-health Advising Committee's (PAC) Accelerated Program advisor.
Students formally accepted into a 3+ Accelerated Program will complete their fourth year of coursework - taken at RFUMS and not shown here - and apply the credit toward their Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry at DePaul. Students must apply for degree conferral via Campus Connection by the deadline outlined in the Student Handbook in order to be considered a candidate for earning their Bachelor of Arts degree at the conclusion of their fourth year of study. As part of the agreement with RFUMS, some Liberal Studies Program courses, Chemistry major requirements, and open electives will be fulfilled by RFUMS courses. To avoid possibly earning duplicate credit for some courses, please be sure you meet regularly with the College of Science and Health pre-health advisor and your Chemistry faculty advisor.
Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours.
