PCAT should be taken at the earliest date possible in order to allow a timely review of your application.  You should instruct the testing company to report your scores directly to the PharmCAS Code 104.

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 PharmD. 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, three (3) references [2 - science professors, 1- pharmacist], and a personal statement. It is the applicant’s responsibility to read and follow all PharmCAS and institution-specific instructions. To initiate this process please go to and follow the instructions. Upon receipt of your completed PharmCAS application, you will be notified via email at the address you provide to PharmCAS.

Early Decision

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.

The Early Decision application deadline is September 2, 2014.  In addition to completing the PharmCAS application, you must arrange for PharmCAS to receive all of your official transcripts and fee by August 31st.  If your application, transcripts or fee arrive after the deadline, PharmCAS will automatically change your file from early decision status to regular status.

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.  Refer to the PharmCAS application fee schedule to determine the cost to apply to each additional program.  PharmCAS institutions will make admission decisions on early decision applicants by October 24, 2014.

Step 3 - Harrison School of Pharmacy Supplemental Application

Complete and submit the Supplemental Doctor of Pharmacy Program Application, including a non-refundable processing fee as directed when you submit.

The application cycle will begin July 14, 2014.  Applications received after March 1, 2015 will not be considered for admission in the fall of that year.  Early completion of the application process is encouraged. Applications are processed as they are received; however, interviews will be scheduled only after PCAT scores are available (approximately four weeks after testing date).
