A: No, You DO NOT list any foreign coursework in that section. You will only list coursework from U.S. colleges, including Study Abroad.
A: Yes, if you have attended a non-U.S. institution, then you MUST list the option for “555555 - Non-US (Foreign) Institution” in your list of colleges attended on your web application. Do not list foreign courses.
ALL Canadian colleges and universities are treated as foreign institutions. You must include the information in the Colleges Attended section of your application; you will not list the itemized courses in the Coursework section. Depending on the individual school requirements, you will either send PharmCAS an evaluation of the coursework taken at a Canadian school, send the official Canadian transcript directly to the pharmacy school(s), or both. Be sure to review the School Pages found at www.pharmcas.org for more school-specific information.
A: You MUST read each pharmacy school's instructions before submitting documentation of foreign coursework. These instructions can be found on the individual School Pages that are a part of the PharmCAS directory. College and school policies vary. (Policies do not refer to Study Abroad as defined by PharmCAS). Review the "at-a-glance" tables on the PharmCAS web site for a quick comparison of policies.
The majority of PharmCAS schools require applicants to submit official foreign transcripts to an approved foreign transcript evaluation service for a course-by-course report. Arrange for Foreign Course Evaluation Reports to be sent directly to PharmCAS. Contact the foreign transcript evaluation service as early as possible. The services may take several weeks to process your foreign transcript, once it is received.
Some pharmacy colleges require you to send all foreign transcripts directly to the institution. Some pharmacy institutions do not review or accept foreign coursework or Foreign Course Evaluation Reports. If you have attended a foreign institution, you may be ineligible for admission to those particular pharmacy programs.
A: PharmCAS will not verify that you have used the correct service for a particular pharmacy degree program. You may contact the institution directly to determine if they will accept a Foreign Course Evaluation Report from a service other than the one listed in their admission requirements. If they do not, you must arrange for your foreign transcripts to be sent to each of the services required by your designated pharmacy schools.
A: NO. List only the U.S college that gave you itemized course credit for your Study Abroad. PharmCAS will process Study Abroad coursework in the same manner as domestic Coursework. However, if the U.S. transcript does NOT list each Study Abroad course separately, you must follow each pharmacy school's instructions for submitting foreign coursework.
A: If your designated school does not require a foreign course evaluation, you do not need to send one to PharmCAS.
A: Yes, PharmCAS will send your course evaluation to your schools that you have designated.
