Application and Admission


The application process can be confusing. We’re here to help.

Here are some things to consider as you apply:

  • Do you meet minimum grade requirements?
    • A  grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.50 for overall GPA, science/math coursework GPA, and prerequisite GPA.
    • Minimum GPAs need to be met by the PharmCAS Spring Academic Update to be considered.
    • Cumulative and science/math GPAs include all course attempts regardless of schools’ grade forgiveness policies.  The prerequisite GPA includes only the highest grade if a course was taken more than once.
    • A minimum grade of C- is needed for all prerequisite courses.
  • Have you received CR (credit) or P (pass) grades?
    • Pass or Credit grades in prerequisite courses are currently accepted only for courses taken in Spring or Summer 2020 semesters.
  • Do you have AP and test-out credits?
    • AP and test-out credits will be accepted to meet pre-pharmacy prerequisite coursework if these are noted on the transcript.
  • Do you have foreign coursework?
    • Any applicant with foreign coursework must provide a WES foreign coursework report. (Foreign coursework does not include study-abroad courses taught by US colleges.)
  • Do prerequisites need to be completed before I can apply?
    • No, they do not. The prerequisites that remain when you apply need to be included in the coursework section of the PharmCAS application. All coursework needs to be finished by the end of the second week in August for admission that fall.
