PharmD Applicants


Learn from world experts, focus on pharmaceutical care, and enjoy the small college feel in the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy!

Our committment to the One College, Two Campuses model allows our students to learn via interactive technology classrooms, and have interprofessional collaboration opportunities on both the Duluth and the Twin Cities campuses. Applications for Fall 2017 admission will be accepted August 2016 - March 2017. Keep track of important dates on the PharmCAS website.

Rolling Admissions

Rolling admissions means your application will be reviewed as soon as your application is complete. We accept and review complete applications on a continual basis; submit early to receive priority in selection as interview spaces and seats in the class become limited closer to the PharmCAS deadline on February 1, 2017 and the supplemental application deadline on March 1, 2017. It is strongly recommended that you submit your PharmCAS application by mid-January, as PharmCAS verification can take up to six weeks.

In order to be invited to submit a supplemental application, applicants need to fulfill at least one of these three minimum academic eligibility requirements:

  • 3.0 overall PharmCAS GPA or
  • 3.2 GPA in most recent 60 semester credits or
  • 70% composite PCAT

How Your Application is Reviewed

Once you have submitted a complete application, your application is reviewed within about three weeks according to the first seven selection criteria. If invited for an interview, the Admissions Committee will then review your full application with interview report and make a decision according to all eight of the selection criteria. The Admissions Committee is made up of eight faculty and five students from both campuses.
