Pharmacy Schools that do not require the PCAT

Pharmacy Schools that do not require the PCAT (PharmCAS schools):

1. California Northstate
2. University of California – San Diego
3. University of California – San Francisco
4. Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences – Boston MA
5. Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences – Manchester NH
6. Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences – Worcester MA
7. Oregon State University
8. University of the Pacific
9. Pacific University Oregon
10. University of Southern California
11. Purdue University
12. Touro University – California
13. Washington State University
14. Western University

Notice that none of the California pharmacy schools currently require the PCAT. Since these pharmacy schools do not require the PCAT, there are usually more applicants (thus more competition). Without a PCAT score to weigh in on application, your grade point average is usually weighed more heavily than the pharmacy schools that require the PCAT.

  1. Drake University in Des Moines, IA also doesn’t require PCAT

  2. I’m a Drake PharmD graduate and you do not need a PCAT. Straight from Drake’s website, “The PCAT requirement is waived for application to Drake‚Äôs professional pharmacy program (required by a majority of other pharmacy programs). “

  3. Ohio Northern University in Ada, OH, does not require the PCAT. They are not a PharmCAS school.

  4. Anyone know what school (preferably on the west coast) that has a 3 year pharm program and does NOT require the PCAT? Thanks.

  5. @Travis, University of the Pacific, CA is a 3-yr program and doesn’t require PCAT.
