Marygrove College offers a one year, credit certificate that prepares students to become Pharmacy Technicians.

Marygrove College has lowered this program’s tuition rate to keep this unique career training program affordable and we also encourage students to apply for federal financial aid.* In addition, this program qualifies for the State of Michigan’s No Worker Left Behind program, which is targeted to dislocated workers (people who are laid off) and/or students from low income families. The program provides up to $5,000 per year in grant aid (money that does not need to be repaid) for up to two years to students who have financial need left after other forms of financial aid have been exhausted.

*The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is required to determine eligibility for all federal and state financial aid programs and most of Marygrove College’s aid programs. To learn more about financial aid and to apply, visit: Financial Aid.
