  • 1.  Reminder: 2018-2019 Final Admissions Decisions due September 30

    Posted 09-03-2019 09:38

    Hello colleagues,

    A friendly reminder that by September 30, PharmCAS programs must report final decision and matriculation data for those applicants who accepted offers of admission and began classes in the professional program in fall 2019.

    That means that all of your applicants from the 2018-2019 (previous) application cycle must be set to one of the red decision codes below. (Please note that "None" and "Incomplete" are not final decisions. Instead, use the "Denied" code in these cases.):


    1. Withdrew: Applicant withdrew application before a Pharm.D. program decision was made.
    2. Denied: Applicant was formally denied admission to the program.
    3. Wait List: Applicant was placed on an alternate list.
    4. Return Early Decision to Regular Pool: Early Decision applicant deferred to regular applicant status.
    5. Offer Made: Institution made an offer of admission to the applicant.
    6. Offer Accepted: Applicant accepted offer of admission.
    7. Declined Offer: Applicant did NOT accept offer of admission or accepted offer of admission and subsequently notified the school that they were declining the offer.
    8. Deferred: Applicant accepted offer for the next enrollment year (2019-2020 only)
    9. Rescinded: Institution revoked offer of admission (rare occurrence)
    10. Matriculated: Accepted applicant started classes in the professional program.
    11. Received/Under Review: NOT A FINAL DECISION
    12. Incomplete/Application Not Reviewed: Use this code to reflect PharmCAS verified applicants who failed to meet your supplemental requirements and were not considered for admission. This code is NOT intended for applicants who withdrew their application at any point during the cycle or were formally denied admission for any reason. For Incomplete/Application Not Reviewed decision code, please use final decision code Denied.
    13. Withdrew After Matriculation: Applicant withdraw after classes started.

    *Final decision codes are noted in RED

    More information can be found starting on page 72 of the PharmCAS School Manual. A reminder that the Manual has been updated for fall 2020 enrollment, but these are your decisions for the 2018-2019 (previous) cycle for fall 2019 enrollment.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
