We believe you will find the Pharmacy College Application
Service (PharmCAS) easy to use. PharmCAS responds to the
demands of individuals looking for a more efficient way
to apply to pharmacy colleges by providing a single online
application. This format is more convenient for the applicant,
the participating schools and their national association,
the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).
All applicants must be familiar
with the full instructions in this section of the website.
You may log onto your PharmCAS application to
edit your data as often as you wish until you submit your
final application to PharmCAS. Save your application frequently
to protect against lost data. Click here for your copy
of the PharmCAS
Application Instructions (PDF).
PharmCAS is for first-year professional pharmacy
degree applicants only. High school students,
BS of Pharmacy degree graduates, and current pharmacy
students who wish to transfer to another pharmacy degree
program should contact institutions directly for instructions.
Not all pharmacy colleges and schools participate in the
PharmCAS program. For a list of institutions,
check the Directory
section for participating
Applicants who apply through PharmCAS must:
- Submit a complete web application;
- Arrange for PharmCAS to receive an official
transcript from all accredited US institutions attended by the deadline, and make sure that a copy of the PharmCAS Transcript Request Form is attached to each transcript;
- Send foreign transcript evaluation reports, and test scores (PCAT and TOEFL) scores to PharmCAS by the application deadline, if required by your designated pharmacy schools;
- Arrange for letters of reference to be submitted electronically; and
- Submit the correct PharmCAS application fee by the deadline, with the PharmCAS Payment Form (PDF) attached.
Your designated pharmacy schools may require additional
fees and/or application materials, including supplemental
applications and letters of recommendation. Failure to
submit all required materials as instructed may jeopardize
your eligibility for admission consideration.
Participating PharmCAS programs encourage applicants
to submit applications at least two weeks before their
institutional deadline to avoid Web congestion due to
heavy applicant and Internet traffic. Submitting your
materials early will insure timely processing, help avoid
delays, and may improve your chances for admission to
those pharmacy institutions that use a rolling admissions
process. PharmCAS is not responsible for any materials
lost in the mail or for delays caused by the registrar's
office. Express or certified mail does not guarantee expedient
processing, nor does sending transcripts express or certified
guarantee receipt by PharmCAS.
