CASTLETON—Castleton University and Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS), a private and independent college with campuses located in Albany, N.Y., and Colchester, Vt., recently announced that an articulation agreement has been reached, promising ACPHS admission to select Castleton graduates.
The agreement states that any Castleton University student with a bachelor of science in health science or a related field, a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and minimum PCAT score of 20 is guaranteed admission into the ACPHS program, according to a May 10 news release.
Upon successful completion of the program and degree requirements, participating students will receive a bachelor of science degree in health science, biology, or molecular biology from Castleton University and a doctor of pharmacy degree from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Students will complete both programs in seven years, instead of the usual eight, thus saving time and money.
Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is the No. 1 ranked value-added college in the country. The median salary of former students 10 years after entering ACPHS is over $110,000.
This agreement, along with other articulation agreements and Castleton’s growing list of master’s and doctoral programs, will greatly enrich the undergraduate experience and aid the growth of Vermont’s economy and professional workforce.
