UMN College of Pharmacy Elective Approval Form
All PHAR courses above the 5XXX level will count towards electives except Phar 5700, 5800, and 6800. Courses delivered outside the College of Pharmacy can be used towards the PharmD elective requirement. They must be clearly related to your future practice in pharmacy and must also be listed at the Graduate/Professional level (5XXX or above).

Courses offered from the following departments are pre-approved and therefore exempt from this approval process:
Addiction Studies (ADDS)
Bioethics (BTHX)
Center for Spirituality and Healing (CSPH)
Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (GHSR)
Family Medicine (FMED)
Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology (ECP)
Health Informatics (HINF)
Medical Device Innovation (MDI)
Medicinal Chemistry (MEDC)
Medical Industry Leadership Institute (MILI)
Nursing (NURS)
Pharmaceutics (PHM)
Public Health (PUBH)
Social and Administrative Pharmacy (SAPH)

  • Up to two credits of electives taken prior to matriculation in the PharmD program can also be used towards the Pharm.D. elective requirement. If completion of the course is not verified in your PharmCAS application, then you will be required to provide an official transcript to the Director of Student Services.
  • PharmD students can register for courses that do not meet these requirements without needing to submit this form (eg. undergrad level courses, courses unrelated to pharmacy education) however they will not count toward the 15 credit elective requirement.
  • Note that some courses outside the College of Pharmacy require a permission number to allow you to register.  Consult the department offering the course for a permission number if one is required.
