Admissions Interview

Once selected, the final stretch of your application process will consist of an on-campus interview day on our beautiful Northwest Denver campus. This day includes multiple mini interviews with faculty, community members and/or current students, a Team-Based Learning demonstration, a tour of campus and lab spaces, and the Health Science Reasoning Test. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to chat with current students and faculty to learn more about Team-Based Learning approach, pedagogy and the Jesuit mission. Opportunities for virtual interviews are limited.

Preparing for Your Interview

Your resume can only get you so far. Now is the time to let your personality do its part.

Our Admissions Interview Day will help you determine if Regis is right for you – we really want this to be the perfect fit. It also lets faculty determine which candidates are a good fit for us, and gives you the chance to be considered for one of our scholarships. Each year, we award varying amounts in scholarship funds to our incoming Doctor of Pharmacy students with their acceptance packages!

Check-in for your interview day typically starts at 8 a.m. MT. While there are opportunities for breaks, your schedule will be fully packed, and we recommend eating breakfast before it begins. The morning will start off with a welcome message from the School of Pharmacy Dean, followed by a Team-Based Learning demonstration, Multiple Mini Interviews, and a campus tour that includes our pharmacy lab facilities. Expect your day to wrap up by early afternoon.

To get here, view the campus map and directions, and be sure to check out tips for planning your trip.
