### What type of high school diploma is needed to become a pharmacist?

It would seem that any Pharmacy School would have this answer,
also it would seem that you could call your local pharmacist and
get the correct answer. A high school counselor should also be able
to answer this question, too.
****************************
As long as you have graduated from high school or completed a
GED, it does not matter what type of diploma you have. Either of
these is necessary to enroll in college, where you will complete
undergraduate coursework before applying to pharmacy school. The
pharmacy school will be looking at the grades that you earned in
you college coursework, not your high school diploma.

### How many years of school does a pharmacist have to have?

In the United States, pharmacists must have the equivalent of 4
school years of graduate-level training... that's after
graduation from college. (Some
pharmacy schools do technically allow non-graduates after they have
completed two years of college study, but in practice, competition
for admission means that the majority of pharmacy school students
have completed a four-year college program).
So... basically... between 5 (admitted after two years of
college, and enrolled in a special 3-year program without summer
breaks) and 8 (the more traditional four years college, four years
pharmacy school) years in total.
All of this is, of course, in addition to completing high
school.
