New students enter the program in the fall. Candidates must submit their applications to PharmCAS by June 3, 2019 to create a PharmCAS account/application if they do not have one already. Candidates will need a PharmCAS application to be considered for admission. All application materials, including the application fee, must be received by the deadline. Late and/or incomplete applications will not be considered.


Here is a checklist for the application process:

  • Review our admissions requirements.
  • Apply now on PharmCAS. This application opens in July. (Please note: PharmCAS may take up to 6 weeks to verify and deliver your application to the school after you e-submit. Apply early to avoid a delay in the receipt and review of your application.)
  • Learn about our PCAT requirement.
  • Sign up to take the PCAT.*
  • Arrange for transcripts.
  • Read the FAQs.

*The Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences now accepts MCAT as well as the PCAT. You will need to send your score report directly to the school since PharmCAS does not have the option of including MCAT scores. For more information, contact

Applicants to the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy are expected to conduct themselves within legal and ethical standards of behavior during the admission process. It is our goal to admit students with a high level of professionalism or professional potential.

You are responsible for properly completing your application, sending your supporting documentation and fees to PharmCAS and the School of Pharmacy on time, AND regularly checking the status of your file online by logging onto your PharmCAS web application. The admissions committee reserves the right to review each application on a case-by-case basis.
