A full review of our admissions process was conducted in 2020 and the current requirements reflect significant changes that were made earlier as a result of the review.
Applicants must ensure that they complete and submit the online PharmD application by 11:59 p.m. (EST) January 3, 2022 for September 2022 admission.

Please note that the online PharmD application and the registration procedure for the CASPer Test are separate processes, with different deadlines and fees that must be completed independently of one another. Note that the last valid CASPer Test date is January 5, 2022.
