English Language Proficiency Requirements

Proficiency in English is required. An official TOEFL score report is required; minimum scores are:

  • 650 paper-based
  • 280 computer-based
  • 114 internet-based

Submit scores to PharmCAS using TOEFL PharmCAS Code 8246.  Please note that meeting minimum scores does not guarantee admission.

Students (excluding F-1/J-1 students) who have completed at least 74 semester credit hours at an accredited United States university or college will not be required to submit passing TOEFL scores.

Other English language proficiency assessments may be used; please contact the admissions office for more information.

 

Possible Exemption from General Education Requirements

With a 4-year 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.  Please note this does NOT apply for 3-year international degrees.

Detailed information regarding prerequisites can be found here.
