The College requires every candidate to submit two applications.
You must submit a PharmCAS application to be considered for admission.
Interested candidates should use the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS) to submit their primary application. We only accept primary applications sent through the PharmCAS system. Please note the following:
- Official scores must be sent directly to PharmCAS by Pearsons.
- Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) is highly preferred [NOTE: PCAT scores are valid only if the test was taken within the last two years (e.g., for Fall 2018 not before July 2016).]
Once received and verified as complete, your application will be forwarded to the Office of Admissions for further review.
Submissions should include:
- A completed application
- Three completed recommendation forms, one of which must be from a healthcare professional
- Official or evaluated transcript(s) from each college or university attended
- TOEFL as needed
- A personal statement
Submit your application well in advance of the deadline to ensure we receive it from PharmCAS by April 3rd. We cannot consider applications received after the deadline.
We will email you confirmation once we have received your verified application.
Letters of Recommendation
The application requires three letters of recommendation, including one from a healthcare professional. We do not accept letters from family members.
Recommenders must complete and submit the PharmCAS Reference Request Form directly to PharmCAS.
Arrange to have all transcripts and foreign credentials evaluations (if applicable) sent directly to PharmCAS immediately after submitting your application. Do not send transcripts to the College of Pharmacy unless requested to do so. Foreign transcripts must be evaluated by World Education Services, Inc.
Only Advanced Placement (AP) credits that appear on the undergraduate transcript and specify course and credit (e.g. General Biology- 4 credits) will be accepted.
