 The supplemental application questions will be included in the PharmCAS application.


Make Pacific's PharmD your top choice and receive an admission decision by October 19, 2018.


Early Decision is an option for students who are committed to Pacific.  Applying Early Decision will decrease the time and stress it takes applying to multiple programs, while enjoying a cost savings on application fees. You will be competing with fewer students, thus, enhancing your chances of being invited for an interview. Early Admission candidates have the benefit of finding out a decision early, and if accepted, the peace of mind that comes along with it.  You must submit and designate Early Decision on the PharmCAS application to be considered.  PharmCAS must receive the application, including supplemental questions, and official transcripts and fee by September 4, 2018 to be considered. Early Decision candidates will receive priority in the review process and will receive a decision by October 19, 2018. You can eliminate much stress and anxiety of the long waiting period by being a successful Early Decision applicant!

Early Decision Benefits

  • Decrease time, cost, and stress of applying to multiple programs
  • Reduces or eliminates duplicate applications, data and transcripts
  • Enhance your chances of being invited to an interview
  • Gain more time to prepare for professional school

The University of the Pacific Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences participates in an online application program known as PharmCAS.  The Pacific supplemental application can be found in the "Program Materials" section of the PharmCAS application. Students are required to apply through PharmCAS, concurrently completing the Supplemental Application for Pacific. You will miss the deadline for early decision if you do not submit your application and all required materials, and designate Pacific by September 4, 2018.

If your file is complete and meets the September 4th deadline, but you did not indicate early decision status on your PharmCAS application, you will be reviewed in Tier 1 review. Pacific has four tier deadline dates and more can be found here on the tier review process: Deadlines . The final deadline to apply for the Fall 2019 term is January 7, 2019.
