All students are invited to meet with the Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy Office of Student Affairs to learn more about the college and admissions information. Appointments can be made by calling 903.565.5777 or by emailing

At UT Tyler the pre-pharmacy academic advising is provided by the individual academic colleges. For example, pre-pharmacy students who are biology or chemistry majors would seek advising from the College of Arts and Sciences advising staff.

Pre-Pharmacy Students at UT Tyler

To identify yourself as a pre-pharmacy student at UT Tyler, notify your UT Tyler advisor or the College of Pharmacy and ask for a pre-pharmacy “service indicator” to be placed at the top of your myUTTyler student center page. This service indicator is a red star on the top of your profile. It is only to identify you as a pre-pharmacy student and does not affect your ability to register for classes.

UT Tyler Pre-Pharmacy Club

UT Tyler undergraduate and graduate students wishing to explore the field of pharmacy gather with other students sharing similar interests through the UT Tyler Pre-Pharmacy Club. The club allows students to meet new people, listen to current pharmacists and learn more information related to applying to pharmacy programs. Contact Dr. Jonathan Newsome for information about joining the Pre-Pharmacy Club.
