PharmCAS Application

The University of Houston College of Pharmacy participates in the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS), a national centralized application service that offers the convenience of one general application for multiple doctor of pharmacy degree programs.

Need some guidance on completing your application? Check out our recent Admissions Webinar on how to complete the PharmCAS and UHCOP Supplemental Application.

Supplemental Application

The UH College of Pharmacy requires a Supplemental Application and a Supplemental Application fee ($100) to be submitted online to the UH College of Pharmacy.

UHCOP applicants are to:

  • Submit their PharmCAS application to PharmCAS without delay.
  • Complete and submit the online UHCOP Supplemental Application electronically without delay.
  • Provide the supplemental application fee ($100) and all applicable Supplemental Application materials directly to the UH College of Pharmacy by posted deadlines.

The UH College of Pharmacy cannot access an applicant's PharmCAS record until the PharmCAS processing team has verified the applicant's information (i.e. PharmCAS application, college transcript[s], processed PharmCAS fee, etc.).

As PharmCAS processing may take up to five weeks once all required materials are received, applicants are encouraged to apply early.

The UHCOP Supplemental Application consists of:

  • $100.00 nonrefundable Supplemental Application Fee (credit or debit)
  • Request for International Transcript Evaluation Process (if applicable)
  • Residency Questionnaire (documentation may be required if requesting in-state 'Texas' residency)
  • Important Disclosures
  • Technical Standards
  • Certification Page

Preliminary PCAT Scores

We will accept the Preliminary PCAT Score Report for PCAT test days so long as it is uploaded within your PharmCAS application shortly after completing the PCAT exam. Your PharmCAS ID should be clearly written on the PCAT Student Score report.

Instructions for uploading Preliminary PCAT Score Report to PharmCAS:

  • Write your PharmCAS ID in the top right-corner of the Student Score Report
  • Scan the Student Score Report. It must be easily readable and cannot be any larger than 5MB in size
  • Access your PharmCAS account and upload the Student Score Report in the Program Materials section for the University of Houston College of Pharmacy, in the Documents tab
  • Review the PharmCAS application instructions for more information on how to properly upload documents to your PharmCAS account

Offers of acceptance to applicants taking the PCAT will be made with the understanding that offers are dependent upon submission of official results of the PCAT. Select PharmCAS Code 104 to report PCAT scores directly to PharmCAS.

Mailing items directly to UHCOP

The following items are to be mailed directly to UHCOP to be included with the applicant's record:

  • Official U.S. high school transcript to verify completion of one year of high school physics (ONLY if requesting College Physics exemption)
  • Credit by Examination Documentation (if applicable)
Official, sealed AP/CLEP/IB Student Score Reports from College Board,
An official transcript in a sealed envelope from your college/university indicating earned college credit (i.e. AP scores, CLEP exams, etc). Specific course names and course numbers awarded must be clearly indicated on the transcript for credit to be recognized. (Note: Transcripts sent to PharmCAS may already have college credit listed.)

If possible, include the PharmCAS ID with any items mailed to UHCOP.

Applications missing any required items by the FEBRUARY 1, 2019, deadline will be considered INCOMPLETE, and denied automatically, without review by the admissions committee. The only exception is that we WILL accept February 2019 PCAT scores after the deadline.
