LECOM School of Pharmacy Application Process

Once LECOM receives a candidates verified PharmCAS application, qualified applicants who meet LECOM’s minimum overall GPA of a 2.7 will receive an e-mail message providing information and instructions regarding how to complete the Supplemental Application. The e-mail message will include a username and password to access the secure LECOM Candidate Portal to complete the Supplemental Application and submit the $50 non-refundable application fee. Payment of the $50 application fee is required at the time you submit your application. The LECOM Supplemental Application is very brief, and LECOM encourages you to complete it as soon as possible. The deadline date for submitting the LECOM Supplemental Application is April 1 of the year of application. The application will not be processed by LECOM until both the PharmCAS and Supplemental Applications are submitted.

Applicants are encouraged to complete their applications as early as possible since acceptance offers to the LECOM School of Pharmacy are made on a rolling admissions basis. Applicants being considered for admission will be invited for an on-site interview on a rolling basis between October and May. The on-site interview will give an applicant the opportunity to meet faculty, staff and current students, as well as learn more about the school and the pharmacy program.
