If translation is required:
- Documents must be transmitted from the applicant’s institution via website or .edu email address to translation service and from translation service to our institution
- Translations must be certified
English Language Proficiency Requirements:
Proficiency in English is required and will be measured by:
- An official TOEFL score of 80 or higher (internet-based).
- Submit scores to PharmCAS using TOEFL PharmCAS Code 8246. Please note that meeting minimum scores does not guarantee admission.
- Completion of at least 74 semester credit hours at an accredited United States university or college (excludes F-1/J-1 students).
Possible Exemption from General Education Requirements:
With an international degree from an accredited institution, applicants have the option to claim an academic exemption, which means the General Education Requirements are covered by the degree; all Math and Science Requirements must still be fulfilled.
