Transfer Programs

The Biology/Chemistry Department offers programs specifically for transfer to programs not available on our campus. These include two programs, Agriculture and Pre-Pharmacy:


Purdue North Central does not offer a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture. However, students may elect to complete a general suggested one-year course of study at Purdue North Central before transferring to a West Lafayette Campus program.


Pharmacy majors may only be completed at Purdue’s West Lafayette Campus. Admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy program requires a two-year sequence of pre-requisites which may be taken at Purdue North Central. Completion of these pre-requisites does not guarantee admission to the School of Pharmacy.
