Pre-Pharmacy – Plan of Study
Rangely Campus

Students at Colorado Northwestern Community College can take the majority of required courses to apply to the University of Colorado (CU) Skaggs School of Pharmacy Doctorate Program. Students can take up to 3 years of coursework at CNCC and finish off the last year* of coursework at CU.

In the first 2 years, students will also earn an Associate of Sciences Degree from CNCC. Students may take an optional third year of courses at CNCC before transferring, or can transfer after 2 years.
