Experience the Rockford Campus
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. The Rockford campus also provides in-state tuition to out-of-state and international students through the College of Pharmacy Tuition Scholarship.
Lectures are live and taught via state-of-the-art broadcast learning from both campuses. Students on the Rockford campus have ample opportunities to pursue extracurricular and leadership roles, 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 a variety of community pharmacies and health-systems where students gain excellent experiences. Students interested in a career in rural pharmacy can choose to be admitted to the Rural Pharmacy Concentration (RPHARM) which is based in Rockford.
