Will I be required to interview at the University before I will be considered for admission?

Yes, prior to acceptance, qualified applicants will be required to interview on the Regis University campus. Interviews will be conducted from October through April. Specific dates will be scheduled. Please see the Interview Process collection of FAQ questions and answers for more information.

What factors do you consider when reviewing applications for an invitation to the campus interview?

We look at a number of factors when evaluating applications including breadth of educational experience, Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) score, prior professional and volunteer experience, prior degrees, cumulative grade point average, combined math and life science grade point average, letters of recommendation, and writing skills based on your application essay.

PREREQUISITE/CURRICULUM QUESTIONS

Where can I complete my prerequisite pharmacy courses?

Students may complete their pre-pharmacy course requirements at Regis University or at any regionally accredited college or university in the U.S. International graduates must submit an evaluation of foreign educational credentials from one of the agencies approved by Regis University. See the Prerequisites tab on this page for additional information.

What is the time limit on prerequisites?

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING QUESTIONS

Where and when will I complete my pharmacy practice experiences?

Pharmacy practice experiences are incorporated throughout the pharmacy curriculum. Students spend time during the first three years participating in Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) and spend their entire fourth year completing Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs). Students begin IPPE rotations in the Spring semester of the P1 year, and continue IPPE rotations during each semester through the P3 year.

The primary locations of our practice sites include the greater Denver Metro area into Colorado Springs (South) and Fort Collins (North). We also have additional practice sites throughout the state of Colorado, and can offer opportunities for out-of-state and international rotations in select locations and depending on rotation timing.

Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) include various real practice experiences in community, hospital/health system, research and other pharmacy-based settings. Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) will be primarily direct patient care experiences that build on the introductory experiences. Students must complete one APPE rotation in each of the following areas: Hospital/Health System, Community, Inpatient Acute Care, and Ambulatory Patient Care. Additionally, students must complete at least one rotation with a Regis faculty member. Students are also permitted up to one non-patient care rotation during their APPE year.

How do I get to my pharmacy practice experiences?

Experiential rotations generally take place off-campus. For that reason, students must have access to reliable transportation. All housing and transportations costs associated with experiential rotations are the responsibility of the student.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Why choose Regis University School of Pharmacy?

The Regis University School of Pharmacy environment is lively, contemporary and innovative. The curriculum builds strong foundational knowledge of pharmacotherapy while engaging students and faculty in discussions around application to patient care in pharmacy practice. The small class size allows us to build a community of learners with individual faculty mentoring.

What degree will be offered?

Students will graduate with a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree with dual degree options to earn a M.S. in Health Services Administration or M.S. in Health Care Informatics.

Can the Pharm.D. program be completed on a part-time basis?

No, the Pharm.D. program is for students who are enrolled full-time.

What will the tuition be for Pharm.D. students?

Tuition information can be found under the 'tuition' tab on this page.

Are there any scholarship opportunities?

Yes. Upon acceptance to the school, a committee of faculty will review each accepted applicant and award $250,000 in scholarships to incoming students. The monies will be divided over eight semesters. 

Is University housing available for Pharm.D. students?

Pharm.D. students live off-campus in the surrounding Denver neighborhoods or suburbs. Regis University’s off-campus housing service, found at offcampushousing.regis.edu, provides students with off-campus housing listings, a roommate finder, message boards, and other resources. Additionally, select units in the off-campus Vince J. Boryla Apartments located one block south of campus are reserved for incoming Pharm.D. students.

Can I work while in the program?

Working in a pharmacy or other healthcare fields can be a valuable component of your education. Initially however, students are encouraged to limit their outside work due to the academic rigor of the program. Ultimately, the choice of whether or not to work while in school is up to each individual student.

How do students pay for the program?

We appreciate that pharmacy school is a significant financial investment. Students typically pay for tuition and living expenses through various sources including personal resources, scholarships, grants, and student loans. Once admitted to the program, you will have a financial aid counselor available to work with you on securing loans. Go to Office of Financial Aid for additional information.

How can I get more information?

Our admissions counselors are dedicated to helping you through the admissions process and answering questions you may have. Please feel free to call our office at 303.458.4344, email or request information.

Can I attend Regis University as a Pre-Pharmacy student?

Yes. Our Pre-Pharmacy option includes prerequisite coursework and affords a guaranteed opportunity to participate in interviews for admission to the PharmD program provided students meet minimum admission requirements. There is also a seamless early assurance program for entrance into the Pharm.D. program. Should students meet a set of rigorous criteria, the PCAT and formal application will be waived. 

THE INTERVIEW PROCESS

How will I know when/if to attend an interview day event?

Following the submission of a complete application through PharmCAS, selected applicants will receive an email interview invitation. The invitation will outline directions to Regis University, parking and instructions for the interview day. Adult family members are also invited to the interview day where they will enjoy separate programming from the applicant.

What will the interview day consist of?

The interview day will consist of a number of activities. When you arrive you will register and be given detailed instructions about your day.  There will be the opportunity to mingle with several faculty and current students who will be available to welcome you.  Each candidate will participate in multiple mini-interviews. This approach allows you the opportunity to speak with a number of different faculty members, current pharmacy students and/or practicing pharmacists. Along with the interview, you will be given a guided University tour and will have an on-site writing exercise to demonstrate your writing skills. During the day there will be a short exercise demonstrating our team based learning approach in the classroom. In addition, all candidates get to join current students and faculty to mingle over a meal provided by Bon Appétit, our campus caterer specializing in fresh, seasonal and regional food. Good food and great conversation. 

Guests of candidates are welcome and will have the opportunity to tour campus with the School of Pharmacy and sit-in on an information session with the Office of Admissions. The guest program is an excellent opportunity for family and friends to learn more about the School of Pharmacy on a personal level.

What are Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs)?

Multiple mini interviews (MMIs) are a series of short, structured conversations each involving a specific topic. This interview method was developed at McMaster University and has been adopted as the interview method for a growing number of international and U.S. medical, dental and physical therapy schools. The Regis University School of Pharmacy has adopted this method because it provides a more reliable assessment of the applicant characteristics and eliminates the possibility of misrepresentation due to a poor applicant performance in a one time - one interviewer event. This method of interviewing increases the opportunity for applicants to interact with a variety of people over a number of topics. Topics include ethics, leadership, communication, creative thinking, cultural awareness, stress management, compassion, empathy and cognitive moral development. Knowledge of pharmacy is not required for these interviews. During the MMI applicants will be assigned to a private and confidential interview room. Interviewers will move between applicant rooms. At the start of each session, the interviewer will enter the room, introduce themselves and provide the applicant with the question or scenario. The applicant will be given two minutes to read the question or a scenario and prepare for the interview. The interviewer will reenter the room and begin a conversation about what the applicant has read. The interview will last for six minutes and then the interviewer will proceed to the next station. One of the interviews will not be scenario-based but instead the applicant will have back and forth dialogue with the interview for a total of eight minutes giving the applicant the opportunity to talk about themselves. The interviewers have undergone training in the interview and assessment process. They have been recruited from the School of Pharmacy faculty, Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions faculty and pharmacist preceptors. The School of Pharmacy is dedicated to quality assurance and will perform an annual review of the MMIs to assure reliability of the process. To help us in this process we ask that applicants and interviewers complete a short survey at the end of the interview day. Acknowledgements: McMaster University, University of Saskatchewan, and University of Calgary.

What is the writing exercise?

This exercise is modeled after the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) writing sample. Applicants will be asked to review several topic statements and then select one for which they will formulate a reply. The reply is in the form of a coherent essay that addresses the topic through three specific writing tasks.
