ENROLL IN PRE-MEDICINE AT SOUTHWEST
Southwest Virginia Community College and the Appalachian College of Pharmacy have partnered to offer a path to becoming a pharmacist. Students can enroll in the pre-medical program at Southwest and take advantage of low tuition rates and tuition-free options.
Once the two-year program is complete at Southwest, students can apply directly to the Appalachian College of Pharmacy to pursue a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.
The Doctor of Pharmacy program at Appalachian College of Pharmacy is the only three-year program in the Commonwealth of Virginia and one of only a small number of three-year programs nationwide.
QUALITY EDUCATION – WITHOUT THE BIG PRICE TAG
Not only does the student save one year of tuition for pharmacy school, but they may enter the job market one year sooner than if they attend a four-year pharmacy school. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the median salary for a pharmacist is $126,120 per year.
The cost of living in Southwest Virginia is far less than other areas in the state and out of the state. Student housing is available in the community. The savings on tuition and cost of living are excellent reasons to move to the area to attend SWCC and ACP in Oakwood, VA.
SWCC has small classes and students receive more attention from professors. The smaller financial risk at SWCC allows students more freedom to explore career options.
