Even if you have started your higher education journey elsewhere, you may be able to transfer into STLCOP’s seven-year Pharm.D. program. During the four pre-professional years and the first of three years of professional pharmacy study, transfer students may gain admission if space is available and they meet all relevant admission requirements.
  • Transfer students into the first professional year must complete an admissions file in order to be considered. This process is completed online via the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS). In addition to the fees and documentation required through PharmCAS, the College requires a non-refundable $50 application fee and current course list.
  • Transfer students into the first professional year must take the  Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT). This test helps identify qualified applicants by measuring general academic ability and scientific knowledge. Registration and scheduling is done online. Students who take the PCAT should request that their scores be forwarded to St. Louis College of Pharmacy to be added to their application file.
  • STLCOP makes transfer student admission decisions based on available space and the individual’s PCAT score, cumulative GPA and science GPA.
