Pharmacy Direct Admission Program
A Partnership Between MTSU and Union University College of Pharmacy
The purpose of this agreement is to recruit highly qualified, talented students starting as early as a student's first year at MTSU and to offer them Direct Admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program at Union University College of Pharmacy (UUCOP).

Students that are intested in the program, must complete and submit an application to Director for Pharmacy Admissions and Recruitment at Union University.
