New February PCAT test dates added

Pearson has added a new testing block for February 1-12 for students to take the PCAT. Registration is open January 7 – January 28.

Typically, January is the last month in which we accept PCAT scores for fall enrollment, but we (any many others, I assume) will be making an exception for February test takers. We just found out about this via a student this week, so I thought it would be worth sharing!

And, an extra tip, I encourage prospective students to “self-report” their scores to us after they’ve taken the test. A scanned copy or photo of their Pearson score sheet is sufficient and will be verified later with the official score. Their self-reported score is added as a note on their PharmCAS profile. It helps us expedite part of the process until we receive the official copy.
