    Hello colleagues,

    In this edition of The More You Know: WebAdMIT Edition, we are focusing on the Fall Academic Update.

    BACKGROUND
    If fall term grades will not be available until after they apply, applicants must arrange for their official fall 2020 transcripts to be sent directly to PharmCAS as soon as they are available. Applicants must update courses on the application during the PharmCAS Fall Academic Update window.

    FALL ACADEMIC UPDATE WINDOW
    The 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.

    • December 15, 2020: The Fall Academic Update opens. New courses will not be verified until the Academic Update window opens, and the applicant's initial file is verified.
    • February 15, 2021: The Academic Update closes. PharmCAS will not verify new courses entered after this date and will no longer accept Academic Update transcripts.

     

    FALL ACADEMIC UPDATE STATUS DEFINITIONS
    The following statuses appear in WebAdMIT next to any applicant who has begun the Fall Academic Update (AU). (These statuses only apply to Fall AU.)

    Tab
    • AU In-Progress – Any applicant that has been verified and has returned to their application and saved at least one new session or updated at least one course during the Academic Update period.
    • AU Received – Any applicant that has submitted new or updated coursework during the Academic Update period.
    • AU Complete – Applicants that have submitted coursework during the Academic Update period and had their updated transcripts arrive at the CAS for verification.
    • AU Verified – Applicants that have had their updated or new coursework verified by the CAS staff.

     

    FALL ACADEMIC UPDATE DEGREE VERIFICATION
    As part of the Fall AU verification process, PharmCAS will check to see if any new degrees were earned since the applicant first applied.

    IMPORTANT NOTES

    • Applicants can only update their course history once during the Fall AU window. Courses that were originally reported as completed cannot be modified, but new ones may be added.
    • Once an applicant e-submits the Fall AU to PharmCAS, the applicant's AU status in WebAdMIT changes from "AU in-progress" to "AU submitted." At this point, the unverified fall courses are listed in WebAdMIT.
    • GPAs are not revised until courses entered during the Fall AU are verified.
    • Once the updated transcripts are received and courses are verified during the Fall AU, the applicant's AU status changes to "AU-verified." PharmCAS then updates the applicant's revised course history and updated GPAs in WebAdMIT.
    • Applicants can enter additional spring and summer courses and colleges attended at any time before the cycle closes, however, PharmCAS will not verify them, nor generate new GPAs. Review the PharmCAS School Manual for details.

    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
