Applying to the School

The Office of Professional and Student Affairs encourages prospective SIUE School of Pharmacy students to schedule an appointment with a School of Pharmacy advisor to review the student academic profile and discuss the application cycle and academic requirements.

Prospective applicants should begin the application process one year before your intended start date. The SIUE School of Pharmacy requires that applicants complete both the PharmCAS application and an SIUE supplemental application.

In order to begin the PharmCAS application, go to www.PharmCAS.org. Be sure to read the "Before You Apply" section. When completing the PharmCAS application, be sure to:

  • Send PCAT scores to PharmCAS
  • Send all official college transcripts to PharmCAS
  • Send 2 letters of recommendation to PharmCAS

When you complete your PharmCAS application you will be required to list all completed courses, all courses in which you are currently enrolled, and all courses that you plan to take prior to beginning the Pharm.D. program. Remember, pre-pharmacy courses must be completed with a "C" or better before beginning the program and in order to be considered for admission to the professional program, the minimum cumulative, pre-pharmacy, and pre-pharmacy science and mathematics grade point averages are 2.75. Students will be required to have completed all pre-pharmacy courses in the spring term proceeding the intended start date. For example, students applying to enter the SOP in the fall of 2015 must complete all pre-pharmacy courses in the spring of 2015.

All students interested in applying to the SIUE School of Pharmacy must also complete the SIUE School of Pharmacy Supplemental Application. The Supplemental Application is usually available in early June.  It's availability coincides with the PharmCAS application window.

The application deadline for submission of the PharmCAS application and the SIUE Supplemental Application is December 1.

To schedule an appointment with an SIUE School of Pharmacy advisor or for general questions about the application process and admissions procedures contact the SIUE School of Pharmacy Office of Professional and Student Affairs at 618-650-5150 or pharmacy@siue.edu.
