Q: What are the benefits of applying Early Decision?
- You are competing with a much smaller pool of applicants.
- You will save the time, money, and stress of the long traditional application process.
- By applying through the Early Decision Program, you can sit back and relax during your last year of undergraduate work while your fellow classmates are stressing over the application process!
Q: Should I apply to other schools at the same time?
An Early Decision applicant may only apply to one pharmacy school during this time. If an applicant is not offered admission through the Early Decision program before the October deadline, they may begin applying to other schools at that time.

- All transcripts from every college or university attended – including transcripts for dual credit taken in high school
If all requirements are not received by the September 6th deadline, PharmCAS will automatically change your status from an Early Decision Applicant to Regular Status. Your application will not be reviewed by the UCSOP until all requirements have been received.
