PharmCAS institutions are instructed to select a final (enforced) application deadline and a priority application deadline, if desired. Please refer to the PharmCAS School Manual for related policies. Non-PharmCAS institutions must enter an application deadline and fee amount.

PharmCAS institutions may choose to set a priority deadline to encourage applicants to apply earlier in the admissions cycle. Priority deadlines are non-binding. Applicants may apply to one or more schools with a priority deadline or apply to a school after the priority deadline has passed (and before the regular deadline has passed). PharmCAS will not determine whether an applicant has met a school’s priority deadline requirements, nor distinguish between regular and priority applications in processing. If an applicant misses a priority deadline and still wishes to be considered for any school-specific incentives associated with a priority deadline, PharmCAS will instruct the applicant to contact the school directly. If you do not have a priority deadline, select "None" from the list below.

Priority deadlines cannot be set before the final deadline date, nor changed or extended after the cycle launches.
What is the priority application deadline for your program?

Please enter every REQUIRED course prerequisite. Select the subject that best matches the course content. If the program requires more than one course in the same subject (e.g., Biology I and Biology II), enter the courses separately on the form. Do NOT combine them into a single entry. AACP will use the course subjects posted on the directory pages to populate the annual "Course Prerequisite Summary" table. The number of times a course subject appears on the directory page will be equated with the number of courses required by the program in that particular subject. The information will help applicants and programs more easily compare course prerequisites across institutions. Use the text box to provide additional details about your prerequisites, such as recommended courses, alternate courses, prerequisite tracks, and other details.

Pharmacists who previously earned a bachelor's degree in pharmacy in the U.S. or abroad may choose to pursue a traditional or nontraditional post-BS Pharm.D. degree offered by a college or school of pharmacy in the United States. Pharmacists may enter a post-B.S. Pharm.D. program with advanced standing (e.g., in the P2 year). This field does NOT refer to your school's entry-level Pharm.D. degree program for students without a pharmacy degree. Most programs answer "no" to this question.

If CURRENT pharmacists educated in the U.S. and/or abroad apply to the post-B.S. Pharm.D. program through PharmCAS, contact cas@aacp.org for additional instructions.
