We have several ways in which a student may apply to our Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program at Roosevelt University. Below will identify the application process and eligibility requirements.

Regardless of the application pathway, all students will:

  • Participate in an interview
  • If recommended for admission by the Faculty Admissions Committee,
    • Accept the offer and submit a non-refundable admission deposit which will be credited to the student’s first term in the program
    • Agree to the pre-matriculation documents: Matriculation Agreement, Scholarship Merit Terms and Conditions Acceptance, and Technical Standards for Admission, Promotion, and Graduation.
    • Successfully pass a Certiphi Criminal Background Check and Drug Screening (Admission is contingent on satisfactory results on this Criminal Background Check and Drug Screening)
    • Submit a complete Immunization History Form
    • Possess and maintain an active Illinois Pharmacy Technician License while enrolled as a student.
  • Successfully complete the required prerequisites by June 1
  • Submit final official transcripts that validate satisfactory completion of all prerequisite pharmacy courses taken since the submission of the application for admission, and the minimum cumulative grade point averages required.
  • In order to select the strongest candidates from the pool of qualified applicants, the College of Science, Health & Pharmacy Admission Committee will assess not only the successful completion of a pre-pharmacy curriculum, but also the letters of recommendation, scores from the personal interview, PCAT score if submitted, volunteer and co-curricular experiences, health-related work experiences, and written communication.
  • Applicants selected for admission into the Doctor of Pharmacy program will receive a conditional offer of admission. Admission offers are made until all program spaces are filled.
  • Offers of admission are conditional until all outstanding requirements are completed as outlined in the program’s Matriculation Agreement.
  • COVID-19 vaccination is a requirement of the Doctor of Pharmacy program without the option for exemption, due to the clinical site requirements needed for completion of program requirements.
