Founded in 1864, St Louis College of Pharmacy is a private institution established in the Washington University Medical Center biomedical complex. The college offers Bachelor of Science degrees, Bachelor of Arts degrees, and Doctor of Pharmacy degrees to students interested in studying health care. While faculty at STLCOP offer students a number of research opportunities throughout their college career, students also have the option to participate in research at other nearby institutions, such as the TL1 Predoctoral Program at Washington University School of Medicine. For students venturing off-campus, STLCOP is only a five-minute walk from Forest Park, which is home to the St Louis Art Museum, Science Center, and Zoo, all of which are free to visit.

Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Bobbie from Saint Louis, MO
St. Louis College of Pharmacy is one of the best pharmacy schools in the nation. It is very competitive and isn't like your average college. It's small, and the learning is very hands on.
HALLIE from ST LOUIS, MO
STLCOP is a manageable challenge. You have to work to get your grades, but the feeling of working for them and then getting them is rewarding. Don't consider asking for help a sign of weakness, it's a hard program and everyone knows that.
Alexa from Junction City, KS
I feel that I made the perfect decision when I decided to attend the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Everyone here is extremely friendly, and help all around you from the staff and upperclassmen. The good thing is that since everyone here is trying to become a pharmacist, we all know what each of us is going through.
