New facilities, cutting-edge technology, and small class sizes characterize the College’s Rockford campus, which admitted its first class of students in 2010.
The College of Pharmacy is considered One College. Two Campuses. This means that regardless of the campus you choose, you are benefiting from the same accreditation, rankings, and reputation that a UIC degree provides.
Lectures are live and taught via state-of-the-art videoconferencing. Students based at the Rockford campus have many opportunities to pursue extracurricular and leadership opportunities, as well as participate in research, clinical and service-based hands-on learning. In addition to the College’s close ties to the University of Illinois College of Medicine and College of Nursing at Rockford, the city of Rockford is home to several hospitals where students gain experience. Select students are also admitted to the Rural Pharmacy Program (RPHARM), which is based in Rockford.
Illinois’ third-largest city, Rockford is known for its many parks and forest preserves, as well as theaters, museums, and other “big city amenities” in the context of a smaller-town feel and cost-of-living. Explore Rockford via video here and here.
