- 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.
