Step 2 - PharmCAS Application
The Harrison School of Pharmacy utilizes the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS). This centralized service allows applicants to use a single application to apply to multiple Pharm.D. Degree programs. PharmCAS collects and processes applications to pharmacy colleges and schools that participate in this service.
Applicants who apply through PharmCAS submit a completed web-based application comprised of biographical data, post-secondary institutions attended, academic course history, work experience, extracurricular activities, and a personal statement. Applicants must also arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be submitted to PharmaCAS. One letter must be from a faculty member who has taught you in a college-level science course (we prefer that 2 of the letters be from science professors) and one letter must be from a pharmacist. A pre-professional evaluation form from your undergraduate college or university may be used instead of the 3 letters of recommendation.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to read and follow all PharmCAS and institution-specific instructions. To initiate this process please go to www.pharmcas.org and follow the instructions. Upon receipt of your completed PharmCAS application, you will be notified via email at the address you provide to PharmCAS.
The Harrison School of Pharmacy is a participating school and offers "Early Decision" status through PharmCAS. The Early Decision program is a binding option for applicants who have decided that a particular pharmacy degree program is their first choice and that they will enroll if accepted. As an Early Decision applicant, you can apply to only one pharmacy degree program.
You may be offered early admission, denied admission, or deferred to regular applicant status. If you are offered admission as an Early Decision applicant, you are obligated to accept the offer and you will not be permitted to apply to other PharmCAS institutions. If, however, you are denied admission or deferred to regular applicant status as an Early Decision applicant, you may apply to other PharmCAS institutions for an additional fee.
