What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
The campus is one of the most efficient in terms of class schedules and use of classroom space. The atmosphere is fast paced and exciting lying in the heart of downtown Denver. I enjoy being on campus everyday with the opportunity to explore the city.

The University of Colorado Denver, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is an accredited program for obvious reasons. This school has state of the art equipment and highly renowned professors that give the students an advantage over many other schools. The expectations are set high to ensure that only the most confident professionals exit the program and fulfill health-care careers to protect those who need it most.
