A supplemental application must also be submitted with a $50 application fee to the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences’ (CPHS) Admission Office. A passport size personal photograph must be included.

The application deadline is September 1. The MPAP/MSCR Program admits students on a rolling basis so applicants are encouraged to apply early. The earlier an applicant applies, the better the chances are for acceptance.

Once a complete application is submitted, it will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Qualified candidates will be invited to campus for an interview. Interviews are conducted on a rolling basis. If you receive an interview, you can expect a response within two weeks of the interview date.

A background check and substance abuse screening test are required for students who are accepted into the program, and before matriculation.
