Early Assurance – PharmDirect
The Early Assurance PharmDirect Program (EAP) provides high school seniors and college undergraduates with a clear roadmap to admission into pharmacy school at UNT System College of Pharmacy.
The EAP offers eligible students provisional acceptance in a future Doctor of Pharmacy class, dependent upon continued success in meeting prerequisite and admissions criteria. Students with an aptitude for chemistry and the life sciences, strong communication and leadership skills, and a desire to improve the health of patients through a team-based healthcare approach are excellent applicants for the program.
The UNT System College of Pharmacy is excited to launch its Early Assurance PharmDirect program in the 2019-2020 academic year. In the initial stages, participation will be limited to the following partners:
- Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences (TABS- FWISD)
- McMurry University
- Midland College
- Richland College
- Tarrant County College Northeast Campus
- University of North Texas
- University of Texas at Arlington
- University of Texas at Dallas
What Are the Benefits?
Students who meet the requirements for entry into their respective pathways will be provisionally admitted to the Doctor of Pharmacy program. Remaining in the EAP and promotion to the Doctor of Pharmacy program will be dependent upon fulfilling the requirements outlined herein. Students who fulfill the requirements for promotion to the Doctor of Pharmacy program will not compete against the traditional admissions pathway pool of applicants and will not be required to take the PCAT.
Requirements for Acceptance
To gain acceptance to the program, students must meet requirements for the high school or undergraduate college pathway. Acceptance into either pathway will be determined by the UNTSCP Admissions Committee per its established procedures. Learn more about the requirements for each pathway handouts below.
Application and Letter of Intent (LOI)
Students seeking entrance into the EAP via either the High School Pathway or Undergraduate College Pathway must complete the online application process for Early Assurance via PharmDirect by the December 2nd deadline and pay an application fee.
A Letter of Intent (LOI) must also be submitted by the applicant to the UNTSCP Admissions Office. Applicants accepted into the EAP shall be notified by the UNTSCP Admissions Office and provided with a copy of their LOI signed by the UNTSCP Dean.
