PHARMACY COLLEGE ADMISSION TEST (PCAT)

PharmCAS Code 0104

If your designated PharmCAS schools require the PCAT, you MUST arrange for Pearson to send your PCAT scores directly to PharmCAS - CODE 0104. Pearson will send PharmCAS your most recent set of PCAT scores along with test results from up to four other previous attempts over a five-year period.

IMPORTANT! PharmCAS will match your PCAT scores to your application based on your PCAT CID. Enter your PCAT CID and SSN on your PharmCAS application and PCAT registration form. If your PCAT CID is missing on your application, PharmCAS can NOT match or forward your PCAT scores. Applicants who do not report a PCAT CID must contact PharmCAS at 617–612–2050.

TEST OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (TOEFL)

If English is not your first (primary) language, a pharmacy school may require you to submit TOEFL scores directly to PharmCAS. Please visit the PharmCAS school page.


OTHER TESTS

If applying to a pharmacy institution that requires Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), SAT, ACT, GRE or other test scores, arrange for the testing agency to send those scores directly to the school. DO NOT SEND TO PHARMCAS. If you received college credit on a transcript for an AP or IB test subject, report the test credit as a course in the Coursework section of the application.
