    Hello colleagues,

    AACP and Liaison are pleased to offer coupon codes as a new feature in PharmCAS! Coupon codes are application fee discounts that colleges and schools can use to incentivize applicants to apply. If your institution chooses to use this program, it can purchase coupon codes from Liaison and provide them to selected applicants.

    2019-2020 PharmCAS Coupon Code Policies

    • PharmCAS will offer coupon codes for a flat fee of $55.
    • All PharmCAS coupon codes will expire on the cycle close date (June 30, 2020).
    • Coupon codes are only available for purchase after the Early Decision application deadline (September 3, 2019).


    A list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) is attached to help you learn more about this new process. Please carefully review the FAQ before you purchase any coupon codes.

    See also these additional resources:


    Should you have any additional questions that are not answered in the attached FAQ or other resources, please let us know.

    Thanks,
    Katie

    Hi Katie,

     

    Is there a reason why the coupon code cannot be specific to the school that purchased the coupon? I am sure the applicants will soon realize that the coupon code can be applied to any school, which diminishes the incentive for the schools to purchase these coupons. I liked the idea until I reviewed the FAQs, which revealed these coupons are not school-specific L

    Hi Tiffany-Jade,

    Thank you for reviewing the attached FAQ and information. Unfortunately, this is a system limitation. The PharmCAS Advisory Committee and AACP team previously discussed and expressed our concerns about this limitation to Liaison. As a result, the Liaison developers are already exploring possible solutions. If there are any changes, we will certainly alert the schools.

    The committee voted that they would still like to move forward with the coupon codes feature, as most applicants receiving a code should have a relationship with the institution granting the coupon. Additionally, suggested text was provided in the FAQs (#14) for schools to inform the applicant to not share the coupon code with others, as it can only be redeemed once, and that the code is being given to apply to the institution that offered it.

    We hope this optional feature still proves valuable to schools and applicants and encourage all to email us at cas@aacp.org with any other questions about coupon codes.

    Thanks,
    Katie
