    • Application submission deadline is June 3, 2024. For RFU's exclusive PharmCAS invitation code, please contact Nicole Odhiambo.

    • Please submit your application through PharmCAS.
  3. Submit Official Transcripts
    • Please submit transcripts from all universities and colleges attended to PharmCAS according to the provided instructions.
    • Only official transcripts will be accepted.
    • If you have studied outside the U.S., you will need to have your transcripts evaluated for U.S. equivalency using a service like WES or ECE.
  4. Submit Letters of Recommendation
    • Please provide your letters of recommendation through PharmCAS according to the provided instructions.
    • Either two individual letters of recommendation or one committee letter is required.
      • Two letters of recommendation from individual members of faculty (preferably science), employers, supervisors, or pharmacy professionals are preferred by the admissions committee.
      • Letters from additional health professionals and personal references or recommendations may be submitted in addition to the academic evaluations at the candidate's option.
  5. Submit Standardized Test Scores
    • The PCAT is highly encouraged for those with a cumulative or science GPA less than 2.5 as a way to strengthen the application.  If applicants have taken or will take the test, please submit scores to PharmCAS using the instructions listed below.
      • Please use the PharmCAS code 104 when requesting scores to be reported to Rosalind Franklin University.
    • Applicants who are non-native speakers of English are required to submit official scores from the online Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
  6. Interview
    • We will send an e-mail notification to invite qualified applicants for an interview.
    • Because we use a rolling admissions calendar, those who apply early in the cycle are more likely to be interviewed than those who apply later.
