Important Dates

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy will use the Pharmacy College Application System (PharmCAS) for Fall 2021 Admission

Applicants are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office for an evaluation of their transcripts to be sure all necessary pre-pharmacy requirements can be completed. An early evaluation will provide applicants needing to complete pre-pharmacy courses the opportunity to make changes in their fall/spring schedules if necessary. Contact the Admissions Office at COPAdmissions@uams.edu.

PharmCAS Application Deadline

The deadline to apply for fall 2021 admissions is May 3, 2021. To start your application, please visit http://www.pharmcas.org.

Supplemental Application

Applicants selected for interview will be contacted with the supplemental application material information by the admissions office when their application is complete and verified in PharmCAS and their application has been reviewed.  Applicants must complete their supplemental application before their interview date. This is by invitation only. Applicants should not complete the supplemental application without receiving the invitation email from the Admissions Office.

Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT)

Due to the impact of COVD-19, applicants are not required to take the PCAT for fall 2021 admissions. Applicants with a low GPA may take the PCAT if desired. Any questions about taking the PCAT may be directed to the Admissions Office at copadmissions@uams.edu. Apply online to take the PCAT here. Results must be sent to PharmCAS (code 0104) and to UAMS College of Pharmacy (code 0004). Check the PCAT website for information on taking the Official PCAT Practice Test.

Interview Dates

Upon meeting the minimum 2.5 GPA requirement, applicants will be invited to interview. In-person interviews will be held on campus biweekly. Due to COVID-19 however, interviews may be held online. Applicants will be contacted by the Admissions Office with more details regarding their interviews.
