Checklist before you apply

Prerequisites

  • Will you be able to complete all the required courses needed for admission before June 1 of your desired admission year to the College of Pharmacy?(The PharmD first-year calendar begins in August each year.)
  • Are all of your prerequisites from U.S. universities, colleges or community colleges? Have your science requirements been completed within the last seven years?
  • Is your prerequisite science GPA above 3.0? Is your cumulative GPA  at the school where you have completed most of your coursework above a 3.0 (or will it be after your fall semester grades are in)?

Experience & Involvement

  • Will you have at least 50 hours of paid or unpaid voluteer experience in a traditonal or non-traditional pharmacy setting when you apply?
  • Have you been actively involved with pharmacy, health care, science or other organizations? Have you been active in other communitiy activities or coaching, mentoring or tutoring?

PCAT Exam

  • Have you taken the PCAT exam, or made plans to take it no later than the November exam date before the UA application deadline of Dec. 1?
  • Have you reviewed the PCAT scores of those admitted to the UA College of Pharmacy in past years? You'll see a range of PCAT scores - don't exclude yourself from applying becasue your PCAT is not "super high."

Recommendations

  • Do you have three recommenders who have agreed to provide an online recommendation (not a letter) after you have submitted your application? Your recommenders should be people you have worked for, volunteered under their supervision, or teachers.
  • We give you the option of naming a fourth recommender in case one of your preferred three is not able to complete his or her recommendation on time. We recommend you take advantage of this option.

Have you answered "Yes" to all the questions above?  You probably are ready to take the big step and apply in the next cycle for admission to the college.*

But there is one more important question. If we offer you admission, do you want to attend school here? That's an important one. Give it careful thought. If you are not an Arizona resident, have you researched the Southwest and convinced yourself sunshine nearly every day is palatable? Have you considered the costs of non-resident tuition and relocation? All applicants need to have a realistic financial plan that they can implement if they are accepted and also have a solid feeling that UA will be a great place for them to learn how to be the best pharmacist they can be!

Is your answer another "Yes"? We surely hope so. Here's the link to the PharmD Application. Good luck!
