Early Assurance Policy

  • 1.  Early Assurance Policy

    Posted 19 days ago
    Hello Colleagues,

    We are in the process of building out some preferred partnership pathways and articulation agreements with outside institutions to build a stronger pipeline of PharmD applicants. I am curious to see which other PharmD institutions have an Early Assurance agreement with outside institutions and whether you have waived the interview requirement altogether or simply a created a less rigorous and more seamless interview process for those who qualify for Early Assurance. Please feel free to reply here or reach out to me directly at mruggiero@regis.edu with any further feedback or insight you might have.

    Thank you,

    Hi Jenny, I will pass along what I find out! Through your EA Pathways, what is still required as part of the admissions process? Have you eliminated the interview component? If not, are interviews conducted in the same manner for EA students as they are for all applicants?
