- Application Deadline
Applications must be completed through PharmCAS (Pharmacy College Application Service) at PharmCAS. The submission deadline is March 1st, 2022. All application materials must be received and verified by that date for full consideration for the Fall 2022 term.
Early Decision is no longer an option for the 2021-2022 application cycle. Instead, a Priority Deadline has been established.
The Priority Deadline is October 1st, 2021. By submitting your application and its materials by the Priority Deadline, you will receive first consideration for a scholarship. The Priority Deadline differs from Early Decision in that it is not binding if you are admitted and you are able to apply to multiple schools' Prioritiy Deadlines.
- PCAT Examination (OPTIONAL)
If you haven't taken the PCAT yet, please know that it is no longer required for any future admissions cycles. We strongly encourage you to submit PCAT scores if you meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Overall GPA is below 3.0
- Overall grades in science courses are below 3.0
- Science prerequisites were taken 5+ years ago
- Grades have trended downward overtime
Do you still have questions and are not sure what to do? Please don't hesitate to contact the College of Pharmacy Admissions Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two references are required. One reference must be from a paid employer or a supervisor of a volunteer or research experience. Personal recommendations are not accepted. Do not send references to the College of Pharmacy. All references must be submitted through PharmCAS.
- Submitting Transcripts
Send official college transcripts directly to PharmCAS and update all course information during the application process, including the submission of fall term grades. Note that prerequisite course grades of "C" or better are required for admission. If you are admitted, you must also send final copies of all official transcripts directly to the College of Pharmacy.
Non-US (international) transcripts must be translated by World Educational Services, Inc. or Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. and submitted in report form to PharmCAS by January 4th, 2022.
- TOEFL and TSE Tests
If English is not your native language and/or you have completed high school abroad that was not English speaking, you must take the TOEFL exam. Schedule the TOEFL (including the written and verbal components) and have the results sent to the PharmCAS address (Code 8246). If you have completed any ESL coursework, you are required to take the TOEFL. Having a college degree does not exempt applicants from taking the TOEFL. Test scores of 27 in each area are highly recommend to be a successful applicant.
For the 2021-2022 admissions cycle, we will hold live, virtual interviews through the Kira Talent platform system. Select applicants will be notified if they are invited to a virtual interview through email.
- Enrollment Deposit
Students admitted to the College of Pharmacy are required to pay a $1,000 non-refundable enrollment deposit. This is a two-tier deposit process, and admitted students must initally pay a $200 deposit within two weeks of admission that will hold the applicants' seat. In March 2022, students who paid the first deposit will be given instructions to pay the remaining $800 to finalize their decision to enroll in the Fall 2022 term.
- Financial Aid
If you are admitted to the Doctor of Pharmacy program and have completed a degree before starting the program, you will be classified as a graduate-professional student for financial aid purposes. If you have not completed a degree, you will be classified as an undergraduate student for the first two years and as a graduate-professional student during your final two years of enrollment. Please see Financial Aid for more information.
