Application Process

Application Cycle for 2016:

Early Decision deadline:  September 8, 2015

Regular Decision deadline:  Extended to March 1, 2016


Step 1

Apply through the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS).  All information must be RECEIVED by PharmCAS by March 1, 2016 for applications to be considered for the 2016 admissions cycle.  Admissions is competitive and applications are reviewed as they are received.  Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to apply early to increase competitiveness.  Applicants are encouraged to apply by November 1, 2015 to increase competitiveness and to qualify for fall interviews.  The following information should be provided to PharmCAS:

- PCAT scores (code 104)

2015 – 2016 Test Dates

– July 2015  ( 9, 10 )
– September 2015  ( 16, 17, 18 )
– October 2015  (26, 27, 28, 29, 30 )
– November 2015  ( 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 )
– January 2016  ( 5, 6)

IMPORTANT NOTE PCAT scores are matched by the PCAT CID to each PharmCAS application and forwarded to PCSP. PharmCAS will ONLY use the PCAT CID to match scores. The PCAT CID is supplied by Pearson and is different than your PharmCAS ID. If you do not report your PCAT CID, PharmCAS cannot send your PCAT scores to Presbyterian College. If you have any further questions about the matching of your scores, please contact PharmCAS at info@pharmcas.org.

- Official copy of all college transcripts

Transcripts should include all grades for courses taken through the fall semester prior to application.

We recommend requesting transcripts NO LATER than December 15 to ensure that all information is remitted to PharmCAS by the March 1 deadline.

- At least two (2) letters of recommendation

One of your references must be a professional reference from a pharmacist and one must be an academic reference from a college professor.

We recommend requesting letters of recommendation NO LATER than November 1 to ensure that all information is remitted to PharmCAS by the March 1 deadline.
