Application deadlines

PharmD applications may be submitted starting in mid-July. The review of completed applications for interview slots begins on August 1 and proceeds on a rolling basis.

As interview slots are limited, it is to your advantage to apply as early as possible. In previous years, a higher percentage of applicants who applied early were interviewed and admitted than those who applied closer to the final deadline.


Early Action — September 6, 2024

Early Action is a non-binding option. Receive priority review of your PharmD application and selection of scholarships. PharmD applicants who have a 2.9 cumulative GPA or higher are guaranteed an interview. You will be notified of your status within one week of your interview date. You may be offered early admission, denied admission or deferred to regular applicant status to be reviewed again later in the cycle.

Priority Application Deadline — October 4, 2024

You will be given priority after Early Action applicants in the review of your application and selection of scholarships. PharmD applicants who have a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher are guaranteed an interview. You will be notified of your status within one week of your interview date.

Final Application Deadline — June 6, 2025

You must submit your PharmD application before the final deadline to be considered on time!

What if you missed the final application deadline?

Applications completed after June 6 are LATE and will be reviewed only if time and space permit.

All documents must be received by both PharmCAS and Pacific for the application to be considered complete. In order to meet the deadline, PharmCAS must receive all documents by 12 a.m. EST (9 p.m. PST), and all supplemental materials must be postmarked by the deadline date.

Incomplete applications will be reviewed when all missing documents arrive on or before the deadline date. Applications completed after the deadline will be reviewed if time and space permit.
