Three Year Plan for Articulation

Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, or Chiropractic Programs

All of the following classes are mandatory for students who wish to receive a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Human Health Sciences from Hawaii Pacific University after articulating to a Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Chiropractic or Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at one of our partner institutions.

Transfer credits are permitted, but a minimum of 30 credits must be taken at Hawaii Pacific University. 

Although the below list includes all the necessary science pre-requisites required for all of these professional schools, students are responsible for ensuring that if their chosen program has any specific social science/humanities pre-requisites, the appropriate Ged Ed courses are selected. 

Note:  The following list is organized into “terms” to aid course planning, but the order is not mandatory.  Students may take courses in any order they wish while following course progression and meeting pre-requisites.  Credit value is shown in brackets after the course code.
