Lamar University-UH Cooperative Pre-Pharmacy Program

Academic and Conduct Standards

Maintaining Good Standing

In order to remain in good standing after being admitted into the UH/LU Co-op, the student must:

  • Continue attending Lamar University
  • Maintain a minimum cumulative UH prerequisite GPA of 3.2 and UH prerequisite math/science GPA of 3.2. GPA will be reviewed yearly at the end of the spring semester. Any grade of a "D" or an "F" will automatically make a student ineligible to continue in this program. 
  • Continue completing UH prerequisite courses
  • Take the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) during September of the year prior to entrance into pharmacy school. The student must score a minimum of 60 percent in each of the five (5) areas of the PCAT. For more information about taking the PCAT, click here.
  • Meet with the UH/LU Pharmacy Cooperative Advisor at Lamar University at least twice per semester during the academic year.
  • Provide updated transcripts of all undergraduate courses and grades each semester to the University of Houston College of Pharmacy via a signed release form submitted to the UH/LU Pharmacy Cooperative Faculty Director at Lamar University.
  • Remain in good standing at Lamar University. This includes complying with LU's Student Code of Conduct.

Probation and Dismissal

For purposes of probation and dismissal, compliance with academic standards will be evaluated at the end of the fall and spring semesters only. Summer coursework will be evaluated the following fall semester. Evaluation will begin with the spring semester of the freshman year.

A student admitted to the UH-LU Pharmacy Cooperative Program who fails to meet the above academic or conduct standards may be:

1. Placed on probation with appropriate counseling and academic assistance required, or
2. Terminated from the program at the end of the semester during which the student failed to meet the requirements.

A student's participation in the program is automatically terminated if for two consecutive semesters the student fails to meet the above requirements without good cause as determined by UHCOP.

Students terminated from the program will receive a letter indicating that this action has been taken.
