Steps to Apply
This list includes each specific item that needs to be completed in order to have your application reviewed. 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.
Applicants are responsible for ensuring that they are on track to fulfill prerequisites by using the guides of preapproved courses, or consulting with admissions staff.
The PharmCAS is a national application to apply to most pharmacy schools in the United States.
Beginning with the Fall 2018 application cycle, the U of M PharmD supplemental application will be integrated with the PharmCAS application.
Interview Days are scheduled on both campuses throughout the rolling admissions cycle on a first-come, first-served basis.
Applicants submit one application to the U of M PharmD Program and make their campus selection after their interview.
Once you have completed most of the prerequisite courses you are ready to begin the application process. Some prerequisites can be missing or in progress at the time you apply, but all must be complete by the time you would begin the PharmD program.
