PharmCAS Early Decision Program

Participation Update

Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Pharmacy has made the decision to no longer participate in the PharmCAS Early Decision Program beginning in the 2020-2021 admissions cycle for the summer 2021 entering class. Therefore, applicants who planned or were advised to apply via early decision are encouraged to apply early in the admissions cycle as regular-decision applicants instead. The 2020-2021 PharmCAS application will open in mid-July 2020.

The decision to change our participation in this program is with the intent to help promote a more inclusive admissions process that enhances the ability of all applicants to choose the best Pharm.D. degree program to meet their needs and goals, and to support the efforts of participating colleges and schools of pharmacy to recruit and enroll a diverse and qualified pool of pharmacy students. Beginning with the 2021-22 admissions cycle, PharmCAS will no longer offer the Early Decision Program for these reasons.
