    Thank you for taking the time to complete the "Impact of COVID-19 on Pharmacy Admission Policies" form! The results are attached and depict how pharmacy admission policies have been modified to date in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These reports and other resources for applicants are available on the PharmCAS COVID-19 webpage.

    • COVID19 Pharmacy School Admission Policies (PDF – For applicants & public)
    • COVID19 Pharmacy Admissions Summary (PDF – For applicants & public)
    • COVID19 Admission Results for Members (EXCEL – For member school use only)

    The summary report and school-specific spreadsheet included the following data points:

    • Online Interviews
    • Online Course Prerequisites
    • Pass/Fail Course Prerequisites
    • Course Prerequisite Waivers and Substitutions
    • PCAT
    • Health Documentation Requirements for Matriculated Students
    • Criminal Background Checks and Drug Testing

    The public PDFs do not include any school-specific comments, nor all sections of the form.

    We recognize that pharmacy admission policies may change over time and not all programs are reflected in this report. If your institution did not have an opportunity to respond to the initial call for submissions or has updated information to report, please go to https://fs16.formsite.com/AACP/COVID19PharmCAS/index.html and submit or resubmit the form, as needed. We will update the files on a weekly basis.

    On behalf of staff, we continue to wish you well during these difficult times.

    Are there any updates regarding the use of unofficial transcripts for the PharmCAS verification process for the current cycle?

    Hi Steve,

    Liaison is targeting completion of the necessary development for collecting unofficial transcripts in PharmCAS for the end of April. More information will be shared with schools and applicants as soon as it is available. As a friendly reminder, we will continue to provide updates to applicants on the COVID-19 page of the PharmCAS website.

    Thanks,
    Katie
