Applicants must update courses on the application during the PharmCAS Fall Academic Update window.FALL ACADEMIC UPDATE WINDOWThe Academic Update window will open on December 15, 2020, following the completion of the fall 2020 term, and will close on February 15, 2021. It is the applicant's responsibility to submit fall transcripts, add any new courses completed since s/he first submitted the application to PharmCAS, and to edit in-progress and planned courses.
FALL ACADEMIC UPDATE STATUS DEFINITIONSThe following statuses appear in WebAdMIT next to any applicant who has begun the Fall Academic Update (AU). (These statuses only apply to Fall AU.)
FALL ACADEMIC UPDATE DEGREE VERIFICATIONAs part of the Fall AU verification process, PharmCAS will check to see if any new degrees were earned since the applicant first applied.

Does this mean Spring Academic Update grades will not be verified this year?

Hi Jon,Thanks for your question! The Spring Academic Update process differs from Fall, but remains unchanged from previous cycles. PharmCAS does not verify spring or summer 2021 grades, nor generate new GPAs.Applicants can update their spring and summer 2021 courses online at any time. Accepted applicants are instructed to enter their spring grades on the PharmCAS application as soon as they are available, following the completion of the spring 2021 term. Applicants must enter their spring grades before the 2020-2021 cycle and Spring AU close on June 30, 2021.Accepted applicants must arrange for summer 2021 transcripts to be sent directly to the pharmacy school (and not to PharmCAS). The PharmCAS 2020-2021 cycle will be closed before summer 2021 transcripts will be available.Thanks,Katie
Thanks! I was just hopeful that maybe this year would be the year we got Spring verification. Can't blame a guy for trying!!
