Applicants following the International Pharmacist path to admission who are accepted into the PharmD program may be asked to complete and sign a financial review form showing they have the means to live in the United States. The University of Arizona Graduate College estimates that a student coming from outside of the United States to study in the PharmD program will need $60,000 or more a year to meet both living costs and the cost of the program. Students admitted through the International Pharmacist path also may not be eligible for financial aid commonly available to U.S. students.
