Applications & Early Decision
The University of Florida College of Pharmacy welcomes applications for an Early Decision through PharmCAS. Applicants may apply through PharmCAS and learn of a possible approval for admission early in the application process. If you decide that the University of Florida College of Pharmacy is your first choice and you apply through the PharmCAS Early Decision process, then you are committing to enroll if you are admitted. If you are not admitted to the UF College of Pharmacy through Early Decision, you can then apply to other pharmacy colleges through the regular PharmCAS admission cycle.
In addition to a complete PharmCAS application, applicants must submit the Personal Profile and Campus Preference Form to the UF College of Pharmacy Office for Students Affairs and ensure that academic transcripts from all colleges attended, PCAT scores, and at least two letters of recommendation have been received by PharmCAS by the September deadline. If you are not taking the PCAT until September, you may still be considered for Early Decision review. Please contact Mary Beth Yokomi at firstname.lastname@example.org to advise her your PCAT score will be reported after the September 6th deadline.
Interviews for applicants in the Early Decision process will be held on Friday, September 30 and Friday, October 7, from 12 to 5 p.m. at the College of Pharmacy in Gainesville, Florida.
All applicants will be notified of their status for Early Decision by Friday, October 21.
The benefits of applying for the Early Decision process include:
- An evaluation before the regular admission pool is evaluated
- Possible admission so that you can concentrate on academic studies for the remaining academic year
- Completion of many of the preparations required prior to beginning pharmacy classes in the fall of 2017.
If you do not complete and send all documents to PharmCAS and the UF College of Pharmacy by the September deadline, your application will still be evaluated by the Admissions Committee during the regular application review cycle. In this case, applicants can also apply to additional pharmacy programs. More information is available at PharmCAS Early Decision or contact the Office for Student Affairs and ask to speak with an academic advisor.
