This is the required application deadline for students applying to the Pre-Pharmacy and Pre-Dentistry programs. In most cases, those indicating Early Action on their admission applications who do not meet Early Action criteria will automatically be considered for regular admission in the regular decision group. To be considered for Early Action, ONLY admission application needs to be submitted by Nov. 15. Additional documentation can be submitted after this deadline; however, applications will not be reviewed until those documents are submitted.
