Options for Accredited Texas Pharmacy Schools

Updated on January 30, 2012

Those seeking a pharmacist license in Texas must graduate from a school accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). There are a few pharmacy schools in various parts of Texas that have this accreditation status.

As of September 2011, ACPE has accredited 6 Texas pharmacy schools. However, some of these schools have multiple branches, making it more convenient for some students who would like to study in a particular city or part of Texas. Where branch locations are available, it will be noted in the list below. Contact individual schools for admissions requirements.

For a Texas pharmacy license, either an accredited bachelor's degree or a doctorate is sufficient education. Note that all license applicants have to take and pass a national exam and exam on Texas pharmacy laws to get licensed. For other states, contact the state pharmacy board for local license qualifications.

1. For those near the southern tip of Texas, Kingsville has a pharmacy school at the Texas A & M University Health Science Center Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy. This school has an accredited PharmD (docotoral) program. It is located in Kingsville at MSC 131, 1010 West Avenue B. The school may be reached at 361-593-4723.
