Admission Interviews

  • PharmCAS will forward applications to MUSC approximately 3-4 weeks following applicant submission
  • Applicants will be notified via email from PharmCAS of their “mailed application status”
  • In order to be eligible for an interview, a completed PharmCAS application, MUSC Supplemental Application, and PCAT scores must be received by MUSC
  • Once the complete application has been evaluated, selected applicants are interviewed. The MUSC Admissions Committee will begin selecting candidates for interviews in mid-September and will continue to review submitted applications and conduct interviews through March
  • Candidates are encouraged to submit applications early as interview spots are limited
  • Candidates may check their admission status in PharmCAS. The Admissions Committee typically convenes on a 2-3 week cycle and reviews applicant files as timely as possible. If a candidate does not receive an offer within 2-3 weeks following the interview, the individual is still eligible for admission and a decision will be deferred until later in the admissions cycle
  • Accepted applicants will be notified via phone and email.  Wait-listed and denied applicants will be notified via email
  • A non-refundable seat confirmation fee of $485 is required to secure admission. An official transcript from all institutions attended will be required when admitted and prerequisite coursework is completed. This will be a separate transcript request from those submitted to PharmCAS and will be submitted to the MUSC Admissions Office
  • All prerequisite coursework must be successfully completed prior to the start of PharmD classes (fall semester)
  • Candidates participating in the Early Decision program may be offered early admission, denied admission, or deferred to regular applicant status

Applicants who decide to cancel an interview must do so two business days prior to the scheduled interview. Cancellation notice must be reported to the Admissions Manager, Mrs. Jenny Bagg, by 12:00PM EST two business days prior to the interview. Business days are considered Monday through Friday.

Due to the professional nature of pharmacy program interviews, the following policy will be enforced when an applicant cancels an interview after two business days (late cancellation), or fails to show up for a previously scheduled interview (no-show):

·Any late cancellation or no-show will have a note in the PharmCAS system, viewable by all pharmacy degree programs that an applicant applies to, stating “Unprofessional behavior – Interview No-Show”

·Please note that emergency situations are exempt from this policy; however, an applicant still must notify the Admissions Manager, Mrs. Jenny Bagg, if the interview must be cancelled.
