Bachelor of Arts in Pharmacy Studies (B.A.P.S.) Admissions

Students must apply and be accepted to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program (Pharm.D.) at the University of Hawai’i at Hilo College of Pharmacy. In other words, this degree is only available to Pharm.D. students.

Transfer of Credits

Students must submit a letter of request to the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy, Academic Advisor for an official review of their transfer course work and for a B.A.P.S. degree audit to be completed. Only coursework taken in an institution accredited by a U.S. regional accreditation agency in which a letter grade of C or better has been achieved will be considered. Complete course syllabi may be required for review by the College of Pharmacy Dean and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs to determine transfer coursework eligibility. The DKICP Dean will make the final determination if coursework is acceptable for transfer and applicable to the B.A.P.S. degree. Students transferring into UH Hilo with a transferable AA degree or BA from an institution accredited by a U.S. regional accreditation agency will be exempted from the UH Hilo General Education requirements.

Degrees must have been completed prior to initial matriculation to UH Hilo.
