Key points to keep in mind

  • If you are a re-applicant to UT Austin College of Pharmacy, you will need to submit all material required by PharmCAS.
  • An “APPLY TEXAS” undergraduate transfer application is NOT required for Pharm.D. admissions.
  • If you would like to be considered for undergraduate transfer admission to The University of Texas at Austin as well as admission to the Pharm.D. program (in case you are not admitted into the Pharm.D program, for example), you must complete the UT Austin transfer admission application in addition to the Pharm.D. application process.
  • If you would like to be considered for the Early Decision Application cycle, you must take the PCAT exam no later than July, be enrolled for Organic Chemistry I during the fall semester, and complete, pay, and submit both applications by the September deadline.

  • Communication skills (both oral and written)
