Your Application
ApplyOnce - Applying Just Got Easier Application Deadllines

The PharmCAS school deadline indicates the date your application and all materials must be received in the PharmCAS office. This is NOT necessarily the deadline by which your verified application must arrive at your designated schools.

After your application, official transcripts and fee are received, allow up to 4 weeks for PharmCAS to process your application. Whenever a deadline falls on a weekend or Federal holiday, the deadline is automatically extended to 11:59pm EASTERN time on the next business day.

The PharmCAS web application will not allow you to apply to a school once its application deadline has passed. PharmCAS will still accept official transcripts and fees that arrive after the deadline date, however your selected pharmacy schools may not review your application file if your transcripts and/or fee are received late. PharmCAS does not issue refunds for withdrawn applications or missed deadlines.


Participating PharmCAS programs encourage applicants to submit applications at least two weeks before their institutional deadline to avoid Web congestion due to heavy applicant and Internet traffic. Submitting your materials early will ensure timely processing, help avoid delays, and may improve your chances for admission to those pharmacy institutions that use a rolling admissions process. PharmCAS is not responsible for any materials lost in the mail or for delays caused by the registrar's office. Express or certified mail does not guarantee expedient processing, nor does sending transcripts express or certified guarantee receipt by PharmCAS.


PharmCAS does not accept deadline extension requests from applicants. Please contact your designated pharmacy school directly to request a deadline extension. The pharmacy school will notify PharmCAS directly if it agrees to grant you a deadline extension. You have 48-hours to complete and submit your PharmCAS application once the deadline is granted. If you fail to e-submit your application in that time, you must contact the pharmacy school directly to request a second 48-hour deadline extension. Pharmacy schools are not obligated to grant deadline extensions or give consideration to applicants who submit application materials after the institutional deadline.


Withdrawing Your Application
If you wish to withdraw your application from consideration from one or more schools of pharmacy, you must contact the institution directly. PharmCAS application fees are non-refundable. PharmCAS does not issue refunds for withdrawn applications or missed deadlines.

Substituting or Deleting Pharmacy School Choices
PharmCAS will not accept requests to substitute or delete school choices or refund application fees. If after delivering your PharmCAS application, you wish to rescind your application to a particular pharmacy degree program, contact the institution directly to remove your application from consideration.

Adding a Pharmacy School after Application Submission
You may apply to additional pharmacy programs after submission of your PharmCAS application. To apply to additional programs, log onto your PharmCAS application and designate additional schools. Do NOT create a new PharmCAS application to add new designations. PharmCAS must receive the appropriate fee for each additional pharmacy program you select. You cannot apply to a particular school after the application deadline date has passed.

You must arrange for PharmCAS to RECEIVE all of your official transcripts by the application deadline date. A pharmacy school may not consider your application for admission if PharmCAS receives your transcripts late. PharmCAS does NOT enforce transcript deadlines and will forward your verified application to your designated schools even if your transcripts arrive late.
