The first class of students for the South Carolina College of Pharmacy matriculated in August 2006, and has now enrolled its second class. The SCCP has 190 students in each class - 110 on the USC campus; 80 on the MUSC campus. In total, over 700 pharmacy students are enrolled on the campuses of the University of South Carolina and the Medical University of South Carolina. Both the existing USC and MUSC colleges of pharmacy will maintain their independent status as accredited programs through 2010. Each will each graduate its last class of Pharm.D. students in 2009.
Our professional students join the College from throughout the state of South Carolina, and around the country. Their pre-pharmacy grades are outstanding, and PCAT scores top the nation. While our program is '2-4' (two years pre-pharmacy and four years for the Pharm.D.), nearly one-third of our students have an undergraduate degree.
During the four-year Pharm.D. program, our students are introduced to the work environment through a series of Experiential rotations which begin the summer after their first year, and culminate with nine rotations during their fourth year.
Throughout their tenure at the South Carolina College of Pharmacy, students are involved in a variety of projects and events on their respective campus, and make the trek up or down Highway 26 to visit the other campus - either for a football tailgate or a beachside oyster roast.
