Where We'll Be

Come meet us! We’d love to welcome you to beautiful Colorado for a visit, but you don’t have to travel to engage with the University of Colorado. Our team makes several in-person visits to campuses across the country each year. That gives us a chance to meet you where you are, answer your questions and show you what makes CU Pharmacy such a great place to become a healthcare leader.

One of the keys to getting into pharmacy school is to apply early. So, start talking to our recruitment team now to better understand your options. Like, did you know that you don’t have to have your bachelor’s degree to enter the CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy? And, that you can apply to school while you’re completing your prerequisites? Click the icon above for more details or schedule a one-on-one virtual appointment with our recruiting office.

The priority deadline is November 1, 2022. Schedule advising here.
