COVID-19 Update

During these very challenging times, it is our highest priority to ensure that students remain on track with program requirements and are able to do so with little to no interruption. Institutions throughout the country moved classes to an online format for spring, summer, and fall 2020 terms. We understand that many institutions will also be offering courses remotely in the Spring 2021. Courses that we have already approved and/or have been articulated, will be accepted with no additional information required.

If you are considering a course that is not articulated, you will need approval from the Office of Pharmacy Admission. To request acceptance of your proposed courses, please use the Planned Courses form.

When selecting a course, you may find the guidelines below helpful:

  • Pacific prefers that students complete a course that is offered physically on the campus which includes a physical lab.
  • If a physical lecture and lab is not available, Pacific prefers students take an online lecture which includes a virtual lab demonstration.
  • If an online course is not available with an online virtual lab demonstration, Pacific will accept an online lecture course with no lab required.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Pharmacy Admission if you have questions at pharmdadmission@pacific.edu or 209.946.7415.

Transcripts

Pacific requires an official transcript sent from each school you attended by July 1.

Electronic transcripts are preferred and should be sent through Credential Solutions, Parchment or the National Student Clearinghouse. To determine if your school offers this service through one of these vendors, please check their directories. If your school is not listed, arrange for an official paper transcript to be mailed.

Send transcripts to:
University of the Pacific — Pharmacy Processing
Office of Pharmacy Admission
3601 Pacific Avenue
Stockton, CA 95211

You are required to submit official transcripts from all schools attended by July 1 to complete your admission file.  PharmCAS cannot forward transcripts. If you are attending summer 2021 classes, you need to arrange for a transcript to be sent as soon as available and no later than August 15. We must have a grade for all pre-requisite classes prior to orientation.

If you are using credit by exam (AP, IB, CLEP) to fulfill a pre-requisite and official scores have not been sent, you need to have them sent by July 1.

For more information, contact the Office of Pharmacy Admission at pharmdadmission@pacific.edu or 209.946.7415.

Financial Aid

Look for your financial aid award to be sent to you from the Office of Financial Aid in late spring. Please be sure to complete your 2021-2022 FASFA application, go to studentaid.gov

In response to the rapidly evolving events surrounding COVID-19, most of the staff at University of the Pacific, including the financial aid team, are working remotely. We are, however, still answering calls and responding to emails Monday through Friday. You can email the financial aid team at financialaid@pacific.edu or call between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Please note on Wednesdays, they will begin taking calls at 10:30 a.m.

Tuition

Student Accounts will make your first e-bill statement available online after you have registered for your courses. Regardless of registration date, payment in full (or enrollment in a monthly payment plan) is required by August 1, 2021. Please contact Student Accounts at 209.946.2517 if you have any questions or need assistance in determining your appropriate payment.

Intern Pharmacist License

Students are required to read the Intern Pharmacist Application and Instructions. If any of the questions asked in the application requiring a mandatory answer are a cause for concern, you must directly contact the California State Board of Pharmacy for guidance.

Students are expected to meet the requirements for intern licensure during the first semester of the curriculum. Please wait for instructions from the Office of Professional Programs in June or July before completing the intern license application and bring it with you to orientation in August.
