Applicants to the professional program must submit an application with the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS) prior to completing the College of Pharmacy supplemental application. All transcripts, PCAT scores, and letters of recommendation must be sent directly to PharmCAS; such materials will not be accepted if sent to the College of Pharmacy. Once applicants have submitted a PharmCAS application, they will receive a PharmCAS identification number that will be needed when completing the College of Pharmacy application.
Applicants should have PCAT scores sent directly to PharmCAS (Code 0104). Each course for which students have earned AP or IB credit must be listed individually in the PharmCAS application as courses completed during their first semester in college. During the PharmCAS Academic Update period, applicants must submit grades for courses taken during the fall and spring semesters.
The admissions application process has two different options: Early Decision and Regular Decision. The Early Decision (ED) program is a binding option for applicants who have decided that the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy Pharm.D. program is their first choice, and that they will enroll if accepted. ED applicants can only apply to one Pharm.D. program; if they are deferred to the regular admissions process or if they are denied admittance, they are then able to apply to other programs during the regular admission process. To apply early decision, applicants must have submitted their complete PharmCAS and UGA applications by the deadline. The deadline to apply for the binding Early Decision is September 8, 2020. Applicants will learn their ED status by October 23, 2020. For Regular Decision applicants, the preferred application deadline for scholarship consideration is February 1, 2021, and the final application deadline is May 3, 2021. PharmCAS must receive all materials by that closing date.
The PharmCAS and UGA College of Pharmacy applications open on July 14, 2020. Individuals may submit applications anytime thereafter. This year, the UGA College of Pharmacy will employ a rolling admissions process. With rolling admissions, we will review applications, invite candidates to campus to interview, and offer acceptances on a continuous basis throughout our admissions process. This means that interested applicants should submit their applications as early as possible.
