Fall Academic Update Opens Today, December 15

  • 1.  Fall Academic Update Opens Today, December 15

    Posted 12-15-2022 10:10 AM

    Hello colleagues,

    The 2022-2023 Fall Academic Update (AU) window opens today, December 15, 2022, and runs through February 15, 2023.

    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, 2022: 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, 2023: The Academic Update closes.


    • 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 Received." 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. PharmCAS will verify Spring 2023 coursework and generate new GPAs in WebAdMIT for all accepted applicants who complete Spring Academic Update (AU) by the June 30 deadline.



    • All applicants (no matter the decision code) will receive an email about the Fall AU today, December 15.
    • No additional reminders are sent via PharmCAS.

    The following statuses appear in WebAdMIT next to any applicant who has begun the Fall Academic Update (AU).

    • 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.


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