The School of Pharmacy uses a two-step application process. The applicant must submit both a completed PharmCAS application and a School supplemental information and meet both the PharmCAS application deadline and the School supplemental information deadline. For all Pharmacy Application Deadlines please refer to the summary of deadlines located here.

​Notification of Acceptance

Applications to the School of Pharmacy are processed and reviewed during regular intervals in the admissions cycle until the class is filled.

Admission Deferments

An applicant who has been accepted for a given year must matriculate during that year. No admission deferments are allowed. If a student fails to matriculate, the student must reapply the following year if he/she wishes to be admitted to the School.

Reapplication Process

Applicants who are denied admission may re-apply to the School the following academic year. It is strongly recommended that applicants seek guidance from the office of admissions for strengthening their application.

If an applicant wishes to re-apply, a new application must be submitted to PharmCAS and the application will be processed in the same manner as any other application.

Transfer Admission

The School of Pharmacy may accept transfer students from other ACPE-accredited pharmacy schools or colleges as long as these students are in good academic and disciplinary standing and have legitimate reasons for seeking a transfer.

All requests for transfer information should be referred to the office of admissions so that the potential transfer applicant can be counseled prior to submitting an application. To be considered for transfer, a student must meet the School of Pharmacy’s general requirements for admission.

Documents to Submit by April 1st

  1. A letter to the director of admissions indicating why he/she wishes to transfer and explaining any difficulties encountered at his/her current institution;
  2. A completed School of Pharmacy transfer application;
  3. Official transcripts from all schools attended—undergraduate, graduate, and professional;
  4. A catalog and a detailed pharmacy syllabus for any courses for which advanced standing consideration is requested;
  5. A letter from the dean of the college of pharmacy in which the student is enrolled. The letter must indicate the student's current academic and disciplinary status and/or terms of withdrawal/dismissal;
  6. One letter of recommendation from a faculty member at the current college of pharmacy;
  7. Additional documents or letters of recommendation as determined necessary by the director of admissions or dean of the School of Pharmacy.

The Office of Admissions will collect and forward the student's portfolio to the office of the dean, School of Pharmacy for review. If the review is positive, the dean or her designee will invite the transferring student for an interview.

Advanced Standing

If the transferring student is admitted and requests advanced standing, the dean's office will forward the student's request to the appropriate faculty. No advanced standing credit will be awarded for professional pharmacy coursework completed at a foreign college or school of pharmacy.
