Question 1: Does it matter that I’m older than your average applicant?
Definitely not. We find that students of all ages make unique contributions to the class. We encourage applications from qualified applicants regardless of age.
Question 2: Do you give preference to California residents?
No. Although a significant portion of our student body is from California, this is merely a reflection of our overall applicant pool.
Question 3: Can international students apply?
Yes we do consider international students. Please keep in mind that any coursework taken out side of U.S. must be submitted to an approved evaluation service for review. All foreign transcripts must be evaluated course-by-course with letter grades, pass/fail, or credit/no credit, and must specify which courses are considered undergraduate, graduate and professional. For additional international student information, please visit the international student website.
Question 4: Is tuition the same for in-state and out-of-state residents?
Yes. We are a private institution, therefore the tuition assessed is the same for in-state, out-of-state and international students. For more information on tuition, scholarships and loan options please visit the financing my education page.
Question 5: Do you have an early decision process?
No, the College of Pharmacy currently does not have an early decision process.

Question 7: When are acceptance letters and final notification letters mailed?
Applicants are usually notified of the committee’s decision within two-three weeks of review of application.
