Discover a New View of What's Possible

Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Vermont Campus
Welcome to ACPHS-Vermont!
We opened our Vermont campus— the first and only school of pharmacy in the state— because we sensed a need in the region, and we saw great opportunities for our students.

Today, we are a diverse family of scholars expanding the next frontier of human health and exploring the future of pharmacy. Thanks to our faculty and an established network of pharmacies, clinics, and hospitals, our students learn firsthand how pharmacists are playing an expanded and vital role in health care – all while exploring the natural beauty that surrounds us.

With your passion for science and our 135-year tradition of student success, we can redefine the future of human health together. There’s a profound purpose in entering the world of pharmacy. We hope you accept the challenge.

Because for us, discovery doesn't end in the lab. It's a lifestyle.

Around Burlington
Beyond our passion for pharmacy, we’re just as enthusiastic about exploring the lakes, mountains, farm-to-table restaurants, coffee shops and music venues of nearby Burlington, known as one of the nation’s most innovative cities.

Not only is it the headquarters for iconic brands like Ben & Jerry’s and Burton Snowboards, Burlington is also one of the friendliest, healthiest, and most forward-thinking cities in America. Home to several next-generation tech and health initiatives—including biomedical startups and the Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies—you’ll be living just five minutes from one of the best college towns in America.

And you’ll never have a shortage of adventures to choose from—like some of the region’s best spots for hiking, biking, shopping, skiing, kayaking, and other outdoor activities.

Student Life, Community, and Culture
Our students set ambitious goals and are here to focus on advancing human health. Since all arrive having completed two to four years of college, there’s a level of maturity here that elevates the experience for everyone.

This shared sense of purpose is reinforced through activities such as weekend adventures with the Outdoors Club and volunteering with the
Service Club.

Add in an on-site cafeteria, an incredible nearby fitness facility with state-of-the-art equipment, and plenty of attractive places to live near campus, and you may never want to leave!
