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.
The phrase "Select PharmCAS Code 104 to report scores directly to PharmCAS" will be included on the public-facing school directory page. For details on the PCAT tests dates, please visit http://pcatweb.info/.
This section is about evaluations, also known as letters of reference or recommendation (LORs).
PharmCAS will NOT verify that an applicant selected the correct evaluator type for your particular institution.

Pharmacists who previously earned a bachelor's degree in pharmacy in the United States (U.S.) or abroad may pursue a nontraditional post-baccalaureate (post-B.S./post-Bacc) Pharm.D. degree offered by colleges and schools of pharmacy accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). Nontraditional post-B.S. programs are ONLY available to pharmacists who currently hold a pharmacy license in the U.S. and have:
Foreign-trained pharmacists without a U.S. license are NOT eligible for post-B.S. Pharm.D. programs.
Additionally, 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 your program is interested in enrolling in either of the PharmCAS-facilitated services below or if your program requests changes to your current participation, please contact CAS@aacp.org.
