Pre-Health Advising

Steps To Apply

Deadlines for application vary by program.

  1. Take the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).   The September testing date is the last date to take the test if you are applying at the end of Autumn Quarter.  Please note:  WSU no longer requires the PCAT as of the 2016-2017 admission cycle.
  2. Most pharmacy programs use the PHARMCAS application service.  In addition, the two programs in Washington state require supplemental applications: 
  • UW Admissions Info:  Standard applications due December 1.  Early decision applications due September 6th.  In addition, students must submit the on-line supplemental application directly to the UW School of Pharmacy. 
  • WSU Admissions Info: Standard applications due February 1.  Early decision applications due September 6th. 

Interviews are scheduled from January through March.  Notification letters are sent from February through May.
