    Hello all,

    For newer colleagues, those who need a refresher, and perhaps even some seasoned users, below are several WebAdMIT and PharmCAS resources to help you navigate the new 2020-2021 PharmCAS cycle.

    WEBADMIT RESOURCES


    PHARMCAS RESOURCES

    • 2020–2021 PharmCAS School Manual – The purpose of this manual is to assist AACP member institutions in understanding PharmCAS policies and procedures. The manual includes instructions specifically for participating Pharm.D. programs, as well as selected excerpts from the PharmCAS application instructions.
    • PharmCAS Program User Guide – This guide provides documentation, reference guides, and direct links that answer common admissions questions about the PharmCAS Applicant Portal, Configuration Portal, and WebAdMIT.
    • PharmCAS Coupon Codes FAQ – 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 will purchase coupon codes from Liaison and provide them to selected applicants. Please carefully review the FAQ before you purchase any coupon codes.
    • Cooperative Admissions Guidelines (CAG) – The AACP Board of Directors endorsed the CAG, a set of admission traffic rules for pharmacy schools and applicants, in 2016. While all member institutions (PharmCAS and non-PharmCAS) are encouraged to abide by the CAG, AACP does not enforce them. To see which programs participate in the CAG, visit the PharmCAS School Directory and filter by CAG Status.
    • CAS Updates and Policy Review Webinar for Schools: AACP and Liaison staff shared preliminary cycle data, an overview of application service policies, updates for the 2020-2021 application cycle, and a Liaison operations update. View the webinar recording and slides in the PharmCAS Community on AACP Connect library.
    • PharmCAS Applicant Webinar: AACP and Liaison are hosting a webinar on July 29 at 2:00 pm ET. This webinar's purpose is for applicants to get helpful tips and tricks directly from PharmCAS staff to help them navigate the 2020-2021 application. The webinar is free and will be recorded.
    • 2018-2019 PharmCAS Applicant Data Report: This annual AACP report provides aggregate applicant and application data for past cycles. The 2019-2020 report will be available in fall 2020.


    We hope you find these resources helpful and invite you to contact us with your questions.

    Thanks,
    Katie
