Standardized Tests

Be certain to read the standardized test requirements for your designated pharmacy institutions. Enter the type of test and the date it was taken or will be taken on your PharmCAS application, if your designated pharmacy schools require the test for admission.

Pharmacy College Admissions Test – PCAT
PharmCAS Code 104

If your designated PharmCAS schools require the PCAT, you MUST arrange for Pearson to send your PCAT scores directly to PharmCAS – CODE 104. Pearson will send PharmCAS your most recent set of PCAT scores along with test results from up to four other previous attempts over a five-year period.

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. Applicants who do not report a PCAT CID must contact PharmCAS at 617–612–2050 or info@pharmcas.org.

Test Prep

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.

TOEFL

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.

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) – PharmCAS Code 8246

Other Tests

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.

Non-PharmCAS Institutions

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.
