Across the country the cost of a college degree continues to go up and with it the size of student debt. At the UNE School of Pharmacy, we award more than $500,000 annually to Pharm D candidates. Nationwide, Pharmacist have a median salary ($128,570) that is 20% larger than the average of other health professions1 and the largest for the group. Pharmacists also have an unemployment rate below the average for these professions and the best debt to income ratio.

Of the nine New England regional schools, we are one of three with scores that are upward trending.
