  • Change in pre-pharmacy program 
            As a freshmen, beginning in the fall of 2010, the pre-pharmacy requirements are going to be slightly different from the current pre-requisites for graduate  
            school.  Purdue is revamping their undergraduate program, requiring a couple additional classes to be taken as a pre-pharmacy student.  These 
            changes will be creating an accelerated undergraduate program.  At this point in time, it is unsure how IPFW will be complying with the new 
            requirements.  These new changes will not affect any of the current pre-pharmacy students course schedule.  However, if you are an individual
            that is wishing to begin the pre-pharmacy program in the fall of 2010, these changes will need to be taken into consideration.  If you would like 
            more information regarding these changes, please contact me via email at
