If the test is taken multiple times, only the highest PCAT score will be considered by the Admissions Committee. Applicants are required to submit official test scores directly to the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. Official Transcripts Applicants must submit official transcripts to the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. (If you are completing courses for the required AA degree or pre-professional courses during the spring and/or summer 2009, ONLY applicants who are notified of conditional admission to the PharmD program for fall 2009 will need to submit an official transcript with the grades received). Letters of Recommendation Applicants are required to submit two letters of recommendation to the University of Florida College of Pharmacy. Applicants should select references who will be motivated to write detailed comments about the applicant’s character, motivation, service, communication skills, empathy/compassion, self- confidence, maturity, and aptitude for pharmacy studies. Personal Profile & Essay Form This is a required supplemental portion of the application that must be mailed to the College of Pharmacy Office for Student Affairs. Campus Ranking Form This is a required supplemental portion of the application that must be mailed to the College of Pharmacy Office for Student Affairs. The College of Pharmacy admits students for enrollment in the Fall semester among four different campus locations: Gainesville, Jacksonville, Orlando, and St. Petersburg. Students do not apply for admission to a particular campus. The Campus Ranking Form allows applicants to request their campus choice by ranking all four campuses in order of preference. Approximately 130 students are placed at the Gainesville campus, and 50-60 students are placed at each of the other three campuses. The Admissions Committee determines campus placement by considering preferences, reasons, and resources. Although the Admissions Committee attempts to place students at their preferred campus, there is no guarantee that admitted students will be placed at their first campus choice. University of Florida Application for Admission: Professional – Entry Level PharmD This must be submitted online and is required for ALL applicants. There is a required $30 application fee.
