PharmCAS Early Decision

The Early Decision program is a binding option for applicants who decide that a particular Pharm.D. program is their first choice and they commit to enroll if accepted. Early Decision applicants can only apply to one Pharm.D. program.


The Early Decision deadline is September 8, 2020. You must complete the PharmCAS application and arrange for your transcripts to be received by PharmCAS by this date. If application fees or transcripts arrive after September 8, 2020, your application will automatically be changed to regular decision. Contact your selected program directly for additional information on Early Decisions eligibility requirements. 

Admissions Status

PharmCAS programs will announce early decisions as soon as possible, and no later than October 26, 2020. If you participate, you may be offered early admission, denied early admission, or returned to regular applicant status. If you are offered admission as an Early Decision applicant, you are obligated to accept the offer and cannot apply to any other PharmCAS program during the current cycle. If you are denied admission as an Early Decision applicant, you can apply to other PharmCAS degree programs for an additional fee
