BUFFALO, N.Y. – The University at Buffalo School of
Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences has formed new collaborative
2+4 agreements with eight SUNY community colleges to provide
students with the opportunity to earn a doctor of pharmacy degree
in a shorter amount of time.

The 2+4 agreements will allow students to apply to UB’s
PharmD program after completing two years of undergraduate study at
community colleges in an associate’s degree program. Two
qualified students from each community college will be guaranteed
acceptance into UB each year.

The new agreements were formed with Erie Community College, SUNY
Adirondack, Columbia—Greene Community College, SUNY Broome
Community College, Nassau Community College, Rockland Community
College, Tompkins Cortland Community College and Dutchess Community

The agreements follow existing partnerships with Monroe
Community College, Genesee Community College, Finger Lakes
Community College and Fulton—Montgomery Community

“The University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and
Pharmaceutical Sciences values our collaboration with State
University of New York community colleges and these 2+4 agreements
will further solidify our strong partnerships. We look forward to
having their best and brightest students as members of our PharmD
program,” said James O’Donnell, PhD, dean of the UB
School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

For more than 130 years, the UB School of Pharmacy and
Pharmaceutical Sciences has continually been a leader in the
education of pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, renowned
for innovation in clinical practice and research. The school is
accredited by the American Council of Pharmaceutical Education
(ACPE) and is the No. 1-ranked school of pharmacy in New York State
and No. 22 in the United States.
