Provisional Entry Programs (PEP/C-PEP)

The Provisional Entry Programs are designed for a select population of academically superior students coming out of high school and college students who have completed their freshman year who have an interest in pursuing pharmacy as a career.  The PEP and C-PEP programs will provide these students the opportunity to develop both personal and professional relationships with the College of Pharmacy faculty and students upon attending ULM.  The PEP program will be unique to ULM and will bring up to 50 high-achieving students to ULM each year for their pre-professional program in pharmacy.
