  • Academic course history

  • Work experience/Resume

  • Personal statement

  • Non-refundable PharmCAS application fee

  • For applicants with foreign credentials, an evaluation of foreign transcripts through third-party provider World Education Services (See International Admission Requirements.)

Step 3: Complete and Submit the Supplemental Application

Upon our receipt of your complete and verified Pharmcast application, you will receive an email from Temple University School of Pharmacy office of admission with a link to the supplemental application. Complete the information and submit to finalize your application.

Step 4: Interview
