UT Tyler Fisch College of Pharmacy Licensure Exam Pass Rate Above National Average 

TYLER, Texas (February 23, 2024) –The first-time pass rate on the pharmacy licensure exam for the  2023 graduates of The University of Texas at Tyler Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy was  82%, ranking above the national average of 77.5%. 

Pharmacy graduates are required to pass the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination, or  the NAPLEX, to become a licensed pharmacist in the United States. The NAPLEX assesses general  practice knowledge, including identifying drug characteristics, managing treatment plans,  performing calculations and interpreting patient information. 

“The attained first-time NAPLEX pass rate is remarkable and demonstrates the determination of our  students and the dedication of our faculty and staff,” says Dr. Amy Schwartz, Fisch College of  Pharmacy dean. “The outcome is the result of the hard work put forth by all.” 

In addition to achieving outstanding NAPLEX results, 100% of students matched with residency  programs in 2023 and all students passed the Pharmacy Curriculum Outcomes Assessment.
