Important Notes Concerning the Fall 2020 Admissions Process
  • The 2020 Admissions process will open in mid-July 2019 and close on February 3, 2020.
  • The UW-Madison School of Pharmacy has a rolling admissions decision process. This means your application will be reviewed shortly after a complete and verified PharmCAS application is received.
  • We encourage you to submit your application early to receive priority in selection, as interview spaces and seats in the class become limited closer to the deadline.
  • To allow applicants the time and ability to explore multiple pharmacy programs, we and other Big Ten programs are participants in the AACP Cooperative Admissions Guidelines (CAGs) program. Learn more about how this may impact your application.
  • Our program offers the PharmCAS Early Decision, an option that benefits applicants who have decided that our pharmacy program is their first choice. Learn more about the Early Decision program.
