More Details

To be considered for Early Entry into the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences program, qualified students must submit the UM Special Programs and Scholarship Application (in addition to the online University of Mississippi application) by January 5.

An official transcript should be submitted to the Office of Admissions, The University of Mississippi, University, MS 38677. When applying to the university, applicants should indicate their major as “pharmaceutical sciences” under the School of Pharmacy listing.

Applicants will be invited to attend an Early Entry Applicant Day at which attendance is mandatory. Applicant Days are scheduled throughout the year. Final decisions regarding admission to the Early Entry Program will be communicated no later than May 1.

Beginning with the 2020-2021 admissions cycle, applicants are no longer required to take the PCAT for admissions purposes. However, to be considered for school-specific scholarships, students will need to take it, as this is a requirement for scholarships moving forward.

To be part of the Early Entry Living-Learning Community, email School of Pharmacy assistant dean of student services Dr. Chelsea Bennett at cdwelch@olemiss.edu and request to be added to the community.
