Students applying to the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy must complete the central online application through the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS) provided by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).
The PharmCAS application can be found at www.pharmcas.org. PharmCAS facilitates application to the UT College of Pharmacy and other pharmacy colleges and schools designated by the applicant.
Steps in the Application Process
- Apply online via PharmCAS (www.pharmcas.org) and designate that the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy receive your application.
- Register for the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) at www.pcatweb.info and have your score sent to PharmCAS (Code 104). The PCAT is administered multiple times per month during the months of July, September, and January. UT strongly recommends that students take the test early in the admissions cycle (on one of the July or September dates) so that you have the opportunity to retake the exam before the close of the admission cycle.
- Only admitted students will be required to complete the UT College of Pharmacy Supplemental Application online and submit the $75 fee.
Application Process for Admission
- The admissions process is the same for the Memphis and Knoxville campuses.
- The college operates a rolling admissions process. Please note that "rolling admissions" means that we accept and review applications on a continual basis beginning with the PharmCAS application, which becomes available in the Fall of each year.
- Applicants who submit their application earlier will have priority in selection. Positions in the college and interview spaces will become limited or completely full closer to the deadline.
- The College of Pharmacy's application must be submitted by March 2. To allow for PharmCAS processing time, applicants should submit their PharmCAS application in the Fall. Students seeking an early interview should submit their application at least six weeks in advance of the PharmCAS deadline.
Interview and Admission Process
Once your application is complete, your file will be evaluated by the admissions committee. The Admissions Committee consists of faculty members, practicing pharmacists and students from both campuses. The highest-ranking applicants according to our admissions requirements will be notified of a scheduled interview date and time. Interviews will be held on Thursdays in Memphis and Fridays in Knoxville. The committee reviews all applications of applicants who are selected to interview with the college and makes all decisions regarding admissions according to the college's admissions requirements.
It is imperative that you check your e-mail program to determine if you can override the spam filters and authorize all communications from "uthsc.edu" and from webadmit.org. If you cannot override the filter, you should look at your spam folder to see if the e-mail host program has intercepted a communication from us.
March 2 is the deadline for submission of all materials. However, the College of Pharmacy recommends that application be made early.
To comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy must limit conversations regarding individual students and/or their applications. The faculty and staff of the College may not disclose application information, including admission status, to anyone except the applicants themselves.
