Pharmacy School Application Checklist

The PharmCAS application is only one step in the pharmacy admissions process. You must meet all requirements before your application will be processed and reviewed.

PharmCAS Checklist

  • Read all PharmCAS instructions carefully.
  • Use the "PharmCAS Transcript Request Form" to arrange for ALL of your OFFICIAL transcripts to be received in the PharmCAS office by the application deadline! If you do not submit the transcript request form with each of your transcripts, your application file may be delayed in processing.
  • Enter ALL of your U.S. and Canadian coursework on the application using personal copies of your transcripts.
  • Arrange for your PCAT, TOEFL, and TSE test scores to be sent directly to PharmCAS, if required by your designated pharmacy schools. PharmCAS will match your PCAT scores to your application based on your social security number. You MUST report your social security number on your application and on your PCAT registration form.
  • Submit the correct PharmCAS fee to the service by the pharmacy school deadline. You MUST attach a copy of the PharmCAS payment form if you are paying by check or money order. PharmCAS does not accept cash.
  • Review your application for accuracy and print your completed application for your personal records.
  • Arrange for your summer and fall 2005 transcripts to be sent to PharmCAS as soon as they are available. To update your Fall courses use the Academic Update Window.
