Tusculum Signs Affiliation Agreement with ETSU School of Pharmacy

Representatives of Tusculum College and East Tennessee State University signed an affiliation agreement on Monday, November 15, that gives qualifying Tusculum College graduates priority candidate status for entry into the Doctor of Pharmacy program at East Tennessee State University's Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy.

Under the agreement, Tusculum College students who meet coursework and grade point average requirements as well as meet required scoring on the Pharmacy College Admission Test will be guaranteed an admissions interview for the next entering class of the pharmacy program at the Gatton College of Pharmacy.

"This is an opportunity to further support Tusculum College students with their goal of continuing their education in graduate school, as well as an opportunity for East Tennessee State University to keep our best and brightest students right here in East Tennessee," said Dr. Nancy B. Moody, president of Tusculum College.

The agreement went into effect immediately after the signing.

Tusculum College currently has two former students enrolled in the Gatton College of Pharmacy program, Brittany Bible '10 and Stacy Parks '09, both of whom were in attendance at the signing.
