The Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences participates in the PharmCAS Early Decision process. The Early Decision program is a binding option for applicants who have decided that Pacific's doctor of pharmacy program is their first choice and they will enroll if accepted. This is a great opportunity to secure your spot early and receive an admission decision by the third week of October.

  • Only complete one application, minimizing cost, time and stress!
  • Gain more time preparing for the professional program.
  • Applying Early Decision does not guarantee admission, it does mean though, that you are competing with fewer applicants and increasing your chances for an interview offer!


The Early Decision application deadline is September 4, 2018. In addition to completing the PharmCAS application, you must arrange for PharmCAS to receive all of your official transcripts and fee by September 4, 2018. 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 4, 2018.

The School will provide applicants with an admission decision by the third week of October. 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.
