Drug Screening Description

Certiphi uses urine screening methodologies utilizing both laboratory and instant testing technologies. Tests will be performed through Certiphi's vast pool of more than 8,000 collection sites located throughout the United States and Canada.

Once a participating school has offered you admission, Certiphi Screening will send you an email with instructions for completing the drug screen. The email will include a toll-free telephone number to contact with any questions regarding the process.

Individual pharmacy schools may require you to submit to additional drug screenings following the initial screen.

Once a drug screen has been completed, Certiphi will provide the report to the student applicant as well as all pharmacy schools offering acceptance.


Drug Screening Description

This new service will work as follows:

Upon your initial, conditional acceptance by a participating pharmacy school, Certiphi Screening, Inc. will send an email to the preferred email address you entered in your PharmCAS application. This email will provide you with access to a secure, online form via which you will provide basic identifying information, consent for this report to be procured, and payment. Your consent will serve for all pharmacy schools, and you will not be asked to provide consent upon receiving additional, conditional acceptance offers by participating pharmacy schools.

Once you have provided payment, Certiphi Screening, Inc. will provide additional instructions on available drug screening collection facilities to be used for specimen collection. Upon report completion Certiphi Screening, Inc. will send an email to your preferred email address notifying you that your drug screening report is complete. A copy of the report will also be provided immediately to the pharmacy school(s).

Additional Notes:

The report procured during this process will not be released to any party other than the pharmacy schools requesting this report.
