Start This Fall
Application deadline extended to July 5

The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) has extended the 2021-2022 PharmCAS application cycle and University of the Pacific is doing likewise. Submit and complete your application by July 5.


Application Deadlines

Applications may be submitted beginning on July 14 and consideration of completed applications for interview slots will begin on Aug. 1 and proceed on a rolling basis. Since interview slots are limited, it is to your advantage to apply as early as possible. In previous years, a higher percentage of applicants who apply early have been interviewed and admitted than those who applied closer to the final deadline.

Early Action — Sept. 1, 2021

Early Action designations take priority over non-Early Action applications during the review process and scheduling of interview dates. You will be notified of your status within one week of your interview date.

Priority Filing Date — Nov. 1, 2021

Priority Filing Date applications are given priority over applicants who do not meet the November 1 deadline. You will be notified of your status one to two weeks from your interview date.

Deadline to Apply — July 5, 2022

Final deadline to apply and be considered on-time!

Applications completed after July 5 are LATE and will be reviewed only if time and space permit.

All documents must be received by both PharmCAS and Pacific for the application to be considered complete. In order to meet the deadline, PharmCAS must receive all documents by 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Time (HT) and all supplemental materials must be postmarked by the deadline date.

Incomplete applications will be reviewed when all missing documents arrive on or before the deadline date. Applications completed after the deadline will be reviewed if time and space permit.

Benefits of Applying Early Action

Complete your application by September 1 and you will be notified of your status within one week of your interview date.

Reduce stress by decreasing the time waiting for a decision.

Gain more time preparing for the professional program.

Applying Early Action means you are competing with fewer applicants and increasing your chances for an interview offer.

The Early Action program is a non-binding option for applicants who apply early. You may be offered early admission, denied admission or deferred to regular applicant status to be reviewed again later in the cycle.
