How to Apply


Applications to the UMES School of Pharmacy are reviewed continuously throughout the admissions cycle until the class is filled. Applicants must submit an application through PharmCAS (Pharmacy College Application System). Once verified, applications are evaluated by the Admissions Committee. Applicants selected to participate in the mandatory interviews and on-campus sessions are notified by email. For tuition purposes, applicants complete a supplemental application to determine their residency status.

The Admissions Committee uses a holistic process to evaluate all aspects of an application. In addition to GPAs, the applicant’s academic performance, work and community service experience, recommendation letters, leadership and research experience, personal statement, interview performance, and personal and professional attributes are carefully reviewed. The Admissions Committee looks for evidence that the applicant can handle a rigorous 3-year concentrated Doctor of Pharmacy program and has the potential to be an exemplary pharmacy professional and scholar. Applicants are notified of an official admissions decision by email. Applicants accepted to the Doctor of Pharmacy program are required to pay a non-refundable deposit and complete the pre-matriculation requirements. New student orientation begins in early July with classes commencing in mid July.
