Doctor of Pharmacy Application Process

Choosing the right pharmacy school can be a daunting task. At Regis, our admissions team is here to help you understand the application process, help you prepare for your admissions interview, and show you why you should hang your white coat here. Our innovative, accredited Doctor of Pharmacy program will help you build the skills and knowledge for a rewarding career at the forefront of health care, research, and innovation.


 

Interview Days During COVID-19

For the health and safety of our candidates and campus community, we have committed to holding virtual candidate interview days this academic year, 2020-2021. If directives from public health officials change in the spring of 2021, we will consider on-campus interviews at that time.

Application Process and Timeline

July-March
Set the Wheels in Motion


Once your PharmCAS application and all supplemental items are submitted, your eligibility is carefully reviewed. Supplemental materials include all official transcripts, one letter of recommendation, and your PCAT scores (optional). After your application is reviewed, qualified candidates are invited to participate in an admissions interview.

Detailed Application Requirements 

 

October-May
Admissions Interview


Once selected, the final stretch of your application process will consist of interviews with faculty, the Health Science Reasoning Test, hearing from current students and faculty, and opportunities to learn more about our 
Team-Based Learning approach, pedagogy and the Jesuit mission. 

Interview Day Prep

 

May-August
Experience Mountain Time


Take a spin through Denver and see why U.S. News & World Report ranked it the #2 place to live in 2019. There’s a lot to see, so take a little time to check out the mountains, 
42 parks, over 50 craft breweries, and all the eclectic art districts of the Mile-High City. Or, if you’re thinking about where to live while you’re at Regis, it’s never too early to learn more about Denver’s neighborhoods.

Preparing for Your Interview

Your ‘resume’ can only get you so far. Now’s 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 virtual 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 Multiple Mini Interviews, Q&A with current students and faculty and a virtual campus tour. Expect your day to wrap up by early afternoon.

Though all interviews will be held virtually this year, we invite you to visit us for a tour of campus, including the Pharmacy laboratory spaces and classrooms. To get here, view the campus map and directions and be sure to check out tips for planning your trip.

  1. Be yourself. No need to “act the part.” Just be yourself and see if Regis moves to the same beat that you do.
  2. Dress the part. Dress professionally. Although you’ll be in a virtual environment, you will want to dress as you would for an in-person interview to make the best impression.
  3. Create Your Zoom Account. Familiarize yourself with the video conferencing platform so you don’t experience any technical difficulties on the day. Keep a look out for detailed log-in information sent via email in the days leading up to your scheduled virtual interview.
  4. Mountain Time. We run on Mountain Time. Adjust your sleeping schedule accordingly.
  5. Meet current Doctor of Pharmacy students. Here’s your chance to ask our current students what it’s really like. What’s life like in the Mile-High City? How has the Team-Based Learning approach helped them? Bring your questions, we’re sure they’ll have answers.

Once You're Accepted

Now the fun begins. Plus a bit of work – but don’t worry, we'll walk you through every step along the way. In this phase, you’ll check off prerequisites, send us your transcripts and submit your deposit. Ready, set, enroll!

Still have questions? We have answers!

Get all of your questions answered! Regis offers plenty of opportunities for you to explore life as a PharmD student through both on-campus and virtual visit opportunities. Check out our PharmD events page to see all of our upcoming events, from campus and lab tours to financial aid workshops and more.

Team-Based Learning (TBL) has been widely successful in business and medical schools. Recognizing that a changing health care landscape calls for an innovative classroom approach, Regis University is one of the few universities to bring it to pharmaceutical education. Learn about the ways in which teamwork and collaboration will help you succeed.

Set yourself apart with a master’s degree or an academic certificate that will compliment your Doctor of Pharmacy degree. You’ll receive specialized training that will not only advance your pharmacy career but also provide you with the unique skill set needed to become a valuable member of any health care team. 

In addition to the $500,000 in scholarships we award to PharmD candidates each year, learn more about grants, loans and other ways to finance your education. We also offer multiple info sessions throughout the year on the topics of financial aid and available financing programs.
