Early Decision

The McWhorter School of Pharmacy participates in the Early Decision program through PharmCAS. The Early Decision program is a binding option for applicants who have decided that the McWhorter School of Pharmacy is their first choice pharmacy school and that they will enroll there if accepted. As an Early Decision applicant, you can apply to only one pharmacy degree program.

The Early Decision application deadline is Sept. 5, 2017. In addition to completing the PharmCAS application, you must arrange for PharmCAS to receive all of your official transcripts and fee by September 5. If your application, transcripts, or fee arrive after the deadline, PharmCAS will automatically change your file from early decision status to regular status.
You may be offered early admission, denied admission, or deferred to regular applicant status. Applicants admitted to Samford University's McWhorter School of Pharmacy through the early decision process will not be required to submit a deposit to hold a seat in our program. If you are offered admission as an Early Decision applicant, you are obligated to accept the offer and you will not be permitted to apply to other PharmCAS institutions. If, however, you are denied admission as an Early Decision applicant, you may apply to other PharmCAS institutions for an additional fee. PharmCAS institutions will make admission decisions on early decision applicants by Oct. 20, 2017.
