Prerequisite Course Evaluation

Determining which courses will meet admission course requirements can take time and research.

Our office is unable to provide transcript evaluations but we hope the following information and self course evaluation approaches allow you to determine what courses (past, current, or future) will fulfill our prerequisite course requirements.

Applicants who are admitted to our Pharm.D. program will be required to submit official transcripts to the College of Pharmacy. Upon evaluation of these transcripts by UT Austin Main Admissions, we will then be able to provide correspondence of any deficiencies in prerequisite course requirements.

In-State (Texas) Transcripts or Institutions:

Out-of-State Transcripts or Institutions:

  • Familiarize yourself with UT Austin’s Pharm.D. prerequisite course requirements.
  • Familiarize yourself with UT Austin’s core, flag & foreign language requirements.
  • Use your school’s online catalog to research courses that could fulfill our requirements.
  • Courses used towards the pre-med academic path are great course selection indicators.
  • Research which courses are being used by colleges of pharmacy in your home state.
  • Visit with your health professions and/or academic advisors for guidance.
  • If you still have questions about a specific prerequisite, please email us by providing course number/title information, a link to the online course description, and the name of the institution.

Foreign Transcripts or Institutions:

Step 1: Submit foreign transcript(s) documentation to the foreign transcript evaluation services as indicated by PharmCAS.  Make sure you request a course-by-course evaluation.
Step 2: Once you receive your evaluation from a foreign transcript evaluation service, you can then compare your results with our list of pre-pharmacy prerequisite course requirements .
Step 3: If you do not have a bachelors degree that’s equivalent to a U.S. bachelors degree, then you will also be required to fulfill UT Austin’s general university course requirements also known as Core, Flag, and Foreign Language requirements.  If you have a degree equivalent to a U.S. bachelors degree, the CORE and Global Cultures FLAG course requirements will be waived. If you are accepted into the UT Austin College of Pharmacy Pharm.D. program, we will then ask you to submit your official foreign transcript(s) to UT Austin’s Main Admissions Office.  We will communicate more specific details at that time.
