Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
Doctor of Pharmacy Admission Information
The deadline to submit an application for the Fall 2017 entering class will be December 1, 2016. The links provided on this page are designed to assist you throughout the application process. Plan to complete both the PharmCAS and the Pacific Supplemental by the deadline date in order to be considered for admission. Read the instructions carefully to assure you supply us with all required documents.
The Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences offers "Early Decision" (ED) status through PharmCAS. The Early Decision program is a binding option for applicants who have decided that Pacific's degree program is their first choice and they will enroll if accepted. As an Early Decision applicant to Pacific, you can apply to our pharmacy degree program. The Early Decision application deadline is September 6, 2016. In addition to completing the PharmCAS application, you must arrange for PharmCAS to receive all of your official transcripts and fee by September 6th. If your application, transcripts, or fee arrive after the deadline, PharmCAS will automatically change your file from early decision status to regular status. You must also complete your supplemental application by September 6. You may be offered early admission, denied admission, or deferred to regular applicant status. If you are offered admission as an Early Decision applicant, you are obligated to accept the offer and you will not be permitted to apply to other PharmCAS degree programs. If, however, you are denied admission as an Early Decision applicant, you may apply to other PharmCAS degree programs for an additional fee. Refer to the PharmCAS application fee schedule to determine the cost to apply to each additional program.
Please know that Early Decision status is not the same as being considered in Tier 1 review. If you would like to be considered for Tier 1, but do not wish to be considered as an Early Decision candidate, please DO NOT APPLY as an Early Decision Candidate. If your file is complete and meets the September 6th deadline, but you did not indicate early decision status on your PharmCAS application, you will be reviewed for Tier 1 regular admission.
