Benefits of Early Assurance for pharmacy school

You will be a student in the school of pharmacy upon completion of your undergraduate pre-pharmacy credits at our Wisconsin or Ann Arbor campus.

(You need to maintain specific requirements during your undergrad years to remain eligible for early assurance.)

The fee for the PharmCAS (Pharmacy College Application Service) is waived. You are required to apply through this national application system, but now it's free as an early assurance student. That's a savings of $175!

Plus, we will provide coaching to help you succeed through the PharmCAS application process. 


Our dedicated and caring faculty will help you discover your early pharmacy interests.


Your admissions counselor offers continued support as you progress through the early assurance program. 

Begin building your network through events with other Early Assurance students, current pharmacy students, faculty, and practicing pharmacists.

You are eligible to join the pre-pharmacy club and other pharmacy student organizations.
