You must provide a final acceptance letter when you submit your application to the South Carolina Board of Pharmacy, and this can be obtained from the Dean’s office through Jenny Bagg. To receive your final acceptance letter, we must have received your final transcripts showing no deficiencies in your prerequisite coursework. When your final transcripts are received by Mrs. Coates in the Enrollment Office, she will notify you via email. You must then request your letter from Jenny Bagg. Letters are not automatically issued because the date has to be current at the time of application. If you have already completed all prerequisites prior to the spring 2017 semester, you may request your final acceptance letter at any time. Final acceptance letters are sent via email.
