Changes Coming for Spring Academic Update

  • 1.  Changes Coming for Spring Academic Update

    Posted 01-26-2021 10:35 AM

    Hi colleagues,

    AACP is pleased to announce a new PharmCAS enhancement for the current 2020-2021 cycle!

    PharmCAS will continue to instruct all accepted applicants to enter their updated courses and arrange for their official Spring 2021 transcripts to be sent directly to PharmCAS as soon as they are available and before the cycle closes on June 30, 2021. Beginning on April 15, 2021, PharmCAS will also verify Spring 2021 coursework and generate new GPAs in WebAdMIT for all accepted applicants who complete Spring Academic Update (AU) by the June 30 deadline. Previously, the Spring Academic Update process differed from Fall Academic Update in that PharmCAS did not verify spring grades, nor generate new GPAs.

    This system enhancement is intended to minimize the administrative burden on admissions personnel and provide more comprehensive data on the accepted applicant pool.

     

    Note: PharmCAS will NOT verify summer 2021 transcripts during the Spring AU. All updated Summer 2021 transcripts for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle must be sent directly to the pharmacy school (and not to PharmCAS).

    HOW PHARMCAS NOTIFIES APPLICANTS ABOUT THE SPRING AU

    • All applicants with a decision code of Offer Accepted will receive an email about the Spring AU on April 15.
    • After April 15, each time an applicant is added to the Offer Accepted decision code, an email about the Spring AU will be automatically triggered the next day.
    • Finally, all applicants with a decision code of Offer Accepted will receive an email reminder about the Spring AU on June 15.

     If you have questions on any of this information, please contact us at cas@aacp.org.

    Thanks!
