2+4 PharmD Pathway

SUNY Corning Community College has partnered with the University at Buffalo to create a 2 + 4 pathway for students to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy in six years. Students begin at SUNY CCC, earn an associate's degree that fulfills the required prerequisites at the University at Buffalo, and then proceed to the University at Buffalo to complete the final four years of the program.

SUNY Corning Community College students must identify intent to pursue the 2+4 within the first 30 credit hours to ensure they can meet all course requirements during the associate’s degree program. Students should make every effort to maintain continuous enrollment at SUNY Corning Community College.

At the end of the first and second years participants must submit an official transcript of grades to the PharmD Admissions Committee. Their performance in the program will be evaluated, and they will receive a written or electronic response informing them of their status. Failure of a participant to achieve or maintain these standards will result in his or her removal from the program.
