Fall Academic Update Opens Today, December 15

  • 1.  Fall Academic Update Opens Today, December 15

    Posted 12-15-2020 09:12

    Hello colleagues,

    The 2020-2021 Fall Academic Update (AU) window opens today, December 15, 2020, and runs through 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 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.


    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.

     

    For additional details, including Fall AU status definitions and degree verification details, please refer to the November 2020 The More You Know: WebAdMIT Edition post.
