PharmCAS (Pharmacy College Application Service) is the “centralized application service for applicants.” Although a majority of the pharmacy schools use this service, there are a few pharmacy schools that choose not to use PharmCAS. Students use PharmCAS to submit Letter of Recommendations (done either online or by paper), transcripts, a personal statement, and additional application information. This service is not free, and you will need to pay $140 for first pharmacy school and $40 for each pharmacy school after that. It is important to note that some pharmacy schools require you to send in some of the application material DIRECTLY to them in addition to sending it to PharmCAS. This table shows which schools use the PharmCAS service.
PharmCAS makes you input all of your grades one by one from every single university or junior college you have attended, so this can be a very time consuming process. In addition, there is a PharmCAS personal statement which is usually separate from additional essays you must write for supplemental applications at different pharmacy schools.
