Current and former college students can apply via the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS).
You are ready to apply to the PharmD via PharmCAS when you plan to have all prerequisite courses completed by the end of the summer prior to fall matriculation. We accept students enrolled in 2- or 4-year accredited institutions, graduates with bachelor's or post-baccalaureate degrees, former and current UB students.
We are proud to be the No. 14 ranked pharmacy school in the nation and No. 1 in New York State.*

Once we receive your application from PharmCAS and two letters of recommendation, we will invite selected applicants for an interview. UB students should take advantage of the Career Design Center's interview resources. Our interview is a conversation between students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Decisions are sent shortly after interviews. Applicants are expected to respond within 10 days of an admissions offer.
We participate in the AACP Cooperative Admissions Guidelines (CAG), also known as admissions traffic rules. Applicants are expected to hold only one acceptance after March 1. All remaining applicants will receive a decision by mid-August.
