The initiative to offer a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy was backed up by a feasibility study. In a survey conducted among 19 high schools in Pangasinan, it was found out that the BS Pharmacy program is one of the most preferred college courses of graduating high school students. This result prompted Urdaneta City University to formally offer the program in June 2008 as a new course, made possible by the UCU Board of Regents under Board Resolution No. 1866 s. 2007 after its approval on July 11, 2007. 


From the time the College was opened in 2008, enrollment steadily increased – starting with ten students and flourishing to almost 200 students. The College has also produced 30 registered pharmacists since June 2013. 


On May 8, 2013, the program was awarded a special permit to conduct graduation for its enrolled students. On April 4, 2014, the Association of Local Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (ALCUCOA) awarded the Urdaneta City University Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy program, Level II Accreditation. 


As of now, the College of Pharmacy continues to strive for academic excellence through improvements in facilities and equipment, being true to its vision and mission and driven with its aim of producing pharmacists who are scientifically competent in delivering the required full spectrum of pharmaceutical services.
