Application for Admission

Apply Early - Applications are due May 2, 2023

To enroll in August of 2023, please complete the following application steps before May 2, 2023:

1. Apply Through PharmCas

The PharmCAS application will open for filing on July 15, 2022, and close on May 2, 2023. Visit the PharmCAS website to establish an account and begin an application. Detailed instructions can be found at this site to assist you in completing the PharmCAS application.

2. Provide 3 Letters of Recommendation

A minimum of three letters of reference are required. Letters of reference are recommended from science professors and professionals in the field of pharmacy and must be submitted through PharmCAS. A letter of reference is recommended from a pastor, clergy, or spiritual advisor. If an applicant is currently attending a Seventh-Day Adventist institution, a recommendation letter from the pre-professional committee is preferred. This letter will fulfill all requirements for letters of reference.

Re-applicants must submit at least one new letter of recommendation. Previously submitted letters of recommendation will be used for the current application cycle.

3. Submit Official Transcripts to PharmCas

Official transcripts for U.S. students must be received by PharmCAS by the published deadline. International transcript evaluations by a LLU School of Pharmacy approved evaluation service must be received by PharmCAS by the published deadline. Refer to the "International Students and Coursework" section below for approved companies.

Submitting Transcripts to LLUSP

If offered an acceptance, you must request official transcripts to be sent to LLU from all post-secondary institutions from which you have attended, regardless of whether or not it applies to your prerequisite coursework. This includes all colleges, universities, military credit, and unaccredited schools. Transcripts must be sent by the issuing institution(s) directly to LLU Admissions Processing. Transcripts provided in any other manner are unofficial and will not be accepted for purposes of admission. International students must submit all official U.S. and international (non-U.S.) transcripts to LLUSP by the published April PharmCAS deadline.

Please request transcripts to be sent to:

International Students and Coursework

Applicants who have done academic work in countries outside of the U.S. must have all prerequisite coursework completed at a two or four-year regionally accredited U.S. institution.

The approved academic record evaluation for foreign transcripts will still be required as supplemental material for evaluating the potential for success of that student.
