The Colorado pharmacy schools were built for those who own a bachelor degree and want to pursue a four-year advanced degree of Doctor of Pharmacy (or PharmD) in Colorado. Please note that PCAT which stands for Pharmacy College Admissions Test is required for applicants for admissions to pharmacy schools, while Doctor of Pharmacy is a must for those who want to consider working as a pharmacist in Colorado.

This page lists all Colorado pharmacy colleges that are accredited by the ACPE – Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. Included are complete contact information and website addresses of all Pharmacy schools, colleges, and universities within the state of Colorado.

Colorado – a state in the west of the central part of the United States, one of the so-called Mountain States. The population is 4.3 million people. The capital and largest city is the city of Denver. Other major cities are Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Arvada, Pueblo, Westminster (USA), Boulder, Englewood. The state joined the union in 1876, when the country celebrated its centenary.

State nicknames:

Centennial State

Mountain State


According to itypetravel, Colorado is one of three states (along with Wyoming and Utah) whose borders are all latitudes and meridians, and, like Wyoming, it simply forms a “rectangle” (more precisely, a sector of the earth’s surface) between a pair of latitudes and a pair of longitudes. The area occupied by Colorado is 269.7 thousand sq. km.

The territory of the state is intersected in the middle part from North to South by the ridges of the Rocky Mountains (the highest point is Mount Elbert, 4399 m). They form the so-called Great Continental Division. In the east of the state – the Great Plains, in the West – the Colorado Plateau. The climate is moderate, continental. The average temperature in January on the plains and plateaus is 0-4°C, in July 20-22°C. Precipitation is 300-400 mm per year. Major rivers: South Platte, Arkansas, Rio Grande, and Colorado. The vegetation in the east is steppe, in the west it is semi-desert. The slopes of the mountains are mostly covered with coniferous forest.

Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument

In 1969, the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument was declared in Colorado, which is located just a few kilometers from the town of Florissant. Today, the monument protects the beautiful mountain valley of Pikes Peak, which hides numerous fossils and fossils of prehistoric animals and plants. Over a hundred species of prehistoric plants and trees have been identified here.

Several million years old fossils of insects, plants and a petrified redwood forest are preserved here. All these remains show us what ancient life in this area looked like. In prehistoric times, there was a large lake, which was lined with a forest of redwoods, maples, white oaks, cedar and nuts. In addition, the lake was home to many species of birds, reptiles, mammals, mollusks and fish.

All life in the area was ended by a massive volcano eruption 35 million years ago. Under the millions of tons of ash and pumice, the entire valley and the massive redwood forest were buried. However, such an eruption was not the only one in the area, it repeated almost regularly for more than 700,000 years. Many animals and plants are stuck in the layers of volcanic sediments. Over time, more and more geological strata increased on them, which subsequently eroded and the river carried them away.

The local fossils and fossils are about 34 million years old and represent a clear example of prehistoric life on our planet. The fossils found in this park are stored in 17 museums throughout the United States and Europe.


At the beginning of the XVI century. the territory of the future state was surveyed by the Spaniards. Since 1706, the territory of Colorado has been declared a colony of Spain. The province then passed to France.

The United States received eastern Colorado as a result of the Louisiana Purchase (1803). The central part of Colorado passed to the United States in 1845, and the western part – in 1848, as a result of the war with Mexico.

In the 1850s, gold was found near Denver, and crowds of immigrants poured in here.

Coat of arms and flag

Under the law of 1911, the official flag of the state is a rectangular panel. The red letter “C” stands for “Colorado”, which is translated from Spanish as “red color” (colored red). The golden ball inside the “C” indicates the presence of gold mines in the state. The blue and white stripes on the flag symbolize the blue skies and white snows of the Colorado Rockies. On the state emblem, which was officially adopted in 1877, the triangular figure symbolizes the all-seeing eye of God. The coat of arms depicts the state’s mountains, land, and a pickaxe, which symbolize Colorado’s mining industry, the backbone of the state’s economy.


Colorado has such minerals as coal, oil, natural gas, vanadium, uranium, zinc.

Being essentially an offshore zone, Colorado is not included in the “black list” of offshore jurisdictions of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation – there are no restrictions on operations with Colorado companies. Colorado companies can do business all over the world. If a company is managed by non-US residents and does not conduct business in the US, it may not pay any taxes and not file accounts.
