Concordia is accepting applications from students who have already created a PharmCAS account through May 18. Students may request an extension through June 1 by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 1881, Concordia University Wisconsin was one of the state's earliest institutions of higher learning and is currently the second largest private university in Wisconsin, with almost 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students. It is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan in suburban Mequon, Wisconsin, just minutes from downtown Milwaukee. Concordia's commitment to health care education can be seen through its nationally recognized programs in nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy. The pharmacy school is an excellent complement to the existing programs and encourages interdisciplinary approaches to health care education.

Applicants must also provide documentation that they have completed all required immunizations prior to matriculation. Students must complete a background check, a Wisconsin care giver background check and a drug screen.
Ultimately, it is the applicant's decision who they elect to have write their letters, but we recommend the following: One letter from a professor of science who has taught the student at a high level. A second letter from a health care practitioner who can speak to the applicant's ability to succeed in pharmacy school. Thirdly, a letter from either another professor, a pharmacist, or supervisor for a community service or volunteer activity.
After a thorough review of your PharmCAS application, you will be invited to campus for an interview, if qualified. To guarantee an interview invitation, candidates must have:

In addition, you will complete a writing sample, and interview with one or two faculty and/or practicing pharmacists over about an hour. The rest of your 3-4 hours at Concordia is focused on beginning to build relationships with our faculty, staff, and current students as well as a brief tour of our pharmacy building.
