In order to continuously create and maintain the highest quality experiences for GPA Program students, a program fee of $350/semester will be required of every student during the two years of prerequisite coursework. This fee includes the $100/semester advisement fee that is required of all USC Pre-Pharmacy students. Prior to matriculation into the PharmD Program, all GPA Program students will be required to submit an application to our national application system, PharmCAS, which costs approximately $160 and a supplemental USC College of Pharmacy application, which costs approximately $65.
Cost savings are abundant in this program. GPA students may:
- Apply remaining years of USC scholarships (usually 2 years) to PharmD tuition rates
- Apply remaining years of SC State Scholarships to PharmD tuition rates
- Save a minimum of $500 due to PCAT exemption for admissions into the PharmD Program
- Avoid spending hundreds of dollars by eliminating the need to apply to multiple PharmD programs
