you MUST arrange for Pearson to send your
PCAT scores directly to PharmCAS – CODE

IMPORTANT! PharmCAS will match your PCAT scores to your application based on your PCAT CID. Enter your PCAT CID on your PharmCAS application. This number appears on your PCAT registration confirmation, admission ticket, and personal score report. If your PCAT CID is missing, PharmCAS can NOT match or forward your PCAT scores.

Kaplan Test Prep has been named the official test prep provider for the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT). The announcement comes in conjunction with the launch of the Kaplan Test Prep and AACP co-sponsored Foundations of the Future Pharmacist Program, which seeks to make PCAT prep more accessible to all students. As part of this program, Kaplan will significantly reduce tuition for its PCAT prep programs (on site; online On Demand; and live, online Classroom Anywhere) and will be offering tuition assistance.
Studies of PCAT scores and pharmacy school GPA show a correlation between success on the PCAT and success in pharmacy school. Members of AACP believe that students who prepare for the PCAT are more likely to succeed in pharmacy school as well.
If English is not your first (primary) language, a pharmacy school may require you to submit TOEFL scores directly to PharmCAS. Please visit the PharmCAS School Information pages for specific requirements.

If applying to a pharmacy institution that requires
Advanced Placement (AP), International
Baccalaureate (IB), College-Level Examination
Program (CLEP), SAT, ACT, GRE or other test scores,
arrange for the testing agency to send those scores directly
to the school. DO NOT SEND TO PHARMCAS. If you received
college credit on a transcript for an AP or IB test subject,
report the test credit as a course in the Coursework section
of the application.
If you are applying to one or more pharmacy schools that
does not participate in PharmCAS, arrange for your test
scores to be sent directly to the pharmacy admissions
office as required by the school. PharmCAS can NOT forward
PCAT or other test scores to any NON-PharmCAS schools.
