If a disability prevents you from accessing the web application, please contact PharmCAS at 617–612–2050 or email

Once you enter the application dashboard, you will see that the application is seperated into four sections: personal information, academic history, supporting information, and program materials. To help you keep track of your application and all materials, click Check Status at the top of the application dashboard.

At times PharmCAS will use a bulk e-mail process to contact applicants. Some email providers use filters to prevent users from receiving “spam” (unsolicited, junk email). In some case, email filters may interpret an email from PharmCAS or a pharmacy school as “spam” and automatically delete a message to you about the status of your PharmCAS application.  To avoid missing important PharmCAS emails, turn the “spam” or “junk” email filters off during the application cycle. If your email provider does not allow you to turn the filter off, you may have access to a “junk mail file” that archives all messages identified as sent to multiple addresses.  Periodically check your spam/junk email file for PharmCAS or pharmacy school related messages. Add the email addresses,,,, and anything from the * domain to your contacts to prevent messages from being delivered to spam.

If you do not currently have an email address or are unable to turn off the spam/junk filters described, please establish a new email account. Below are a few free email services for you to consider.  (This is not a comprehensive list and does not reflect an endorsement or guaranty of reliable service).
