Spring Academic Update Period

  • 1.  Spring Academic Update Period

    Posted 04-30-2019 09:40
    Hello colleagues,

    On the 3X platform, Spring Academic Update (Spring AU) does not have a specific open date. Accepted applicants can update their spring and summer 2019 coursework at any time and are encouraged to enter their spring grades on the PharmCAS application as soon as they are available, following the completion of the spring 2019 term, and before the cycle closes on June 28.

    As in previous years, Spring AU coursework will not be verified or calculated into GPAs.

    Applicants are informed of the following regarding spring and summer 2019 transcripts:

    • Spring 2019 Academic Update Transcripts
      Accepted applicants should arrange for official spring 2019 transcripts to be sent directly to PharmCAS as soon as they are available and before the cycle closes on June 28, 2019, unless otherwise instructed by the pharmacy school. If you do not submit your updated courses and transcripts in a timely manner, your selected programs may no longer consider you for admission.
    • Summer 2019 Academic Update Transcripts
      Accepted applicants must arrange for summer 2019 transcripts to be sent directly to the pharmacy school (and not to PharmCAS). The PharmCAS 2018-2019 cycle will close before summer 2019 transcripts will be available.

    This information is posted in full within the PharmCAS Help Center. Note that this change does not apply to Fall AU, which still has a defined period and will be verified.

    Thanks,
    Katie
