Do you have what it takes to become an outstanding pharmacist?

The admissions process at Notre Dame's School of Pharmacy is highly selective. All applicants must submit an application via the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS) and a School of Pharmacy Supplemental Application (see the Application Process section).

The application deadlines are March 1 for the PharmCAS application and April 1 for the Supplemental Application for applicants seeing admission for Fall semester. Select applicants will be invited for an on-campus interview.

Early Decision – September 2, 2014 for the PharmCAS application and October 1, 2014 for Supplemental Application. Early decision is a binding option for applicants who have decided Notre Dame of Maryland University is their first choice pharmacy school and will enroll in the program if accepted.  

Evaluation of completed applications (PharmCAS and Supplemental applications) will begin in August and continue until all seats in the class are filled. This initial evaluation will determine which applicants are eligible for an on-campus interview; a final evaluation will determine which applicants are eligible for acceptance. Given the competitive admissions environment, multiple criteria are used to select the most qualified candidates. Grade point averages, PCAT scores, letters of evaluation, professional preparedness and motivation, personal qualities, communication skills, ability to be a team player and decision making will all be considered when reviewing an applicant's file.
