A: If PharmCAS finds significant mistakes while verifying your coursework, your application will be undelivered back to you with an e-mail explaining what is wrong. You must then correct these errors AND RE-SUBMIT the application to PharmCAS in order for us to continue processing and mailing your application.
A: The following mistakes are common examples of reasons why your application would be returned to you for correction:
A: The following mistakes will NOT cause your application to be returned to you for correction:
A: When your application becomes “complete,” it is placed in line for review. Depending upon the season in which you submit, THE WAIT FOR YOUR APPLICATION'S REVIEW CAN TAKE UP TO FOUR WEEKS. PharmCAS DOES NOT REVIEW OR CHECK YOUR APPLICATION FOR ANY ERRORS UNTIL ITS TURN COMES UP FOR VERIFICATION. If our verification staff is unable to calculate your GPA because of an error they discover when your application comes up for review, your application is sent back to you for correction at that time. It is imperative that applications be completed correctly prior to submitting and that applicants turn their information in early to avoid these types of delays.
A: YES. Once you have made the appropriate changes and re-submitted your application to PharmCAS, the individual working on your application will receive an automated message that you have re-submitted your application. They will return to your application to continue processing it within two to three business days. It is important to be accurate the first time to avoid delays in the verification process. If your application is undelivered, you should make your corrections and resubmit as soon as possible to avoid further delays. PharmCAS is not responsible for applications that are not re-submitted in a timely fashion.
A: Resubmitting your application does NOT change your original submission date. However, it does give you a new completion date. Your schools can the e-submission date and the new completion date but you should contact them to determine whether or not this will affect their consideration of your application.
A: YES. If you know you have made an undeliverable error on your application, you may contact PharmCAS by phone or e-mail to have your application undelivered for correction. Your application will still be delayed, but will be put back into line sooner than if you had waited for the error to be caught during the verification process.
A: NO. Applications may only be undelivered for errors to the coursework section.
