Submission of your completed College of Pharmacy supplemental application and a NON-REFUNDABLE fee ($90) are both required in order for your supplemental application to be considered "complete". Once you submit your supplemental application, you will be directed to your application bill using the University of Texas at Austin "WHAT I OWE" system to make payment.

You will need to check the status of your PharmCAS and Pharm.D. supplemental application through the respective web sites.

If you are admitted into the UT Austin College of Pharmacy Pharm.D.

Current and past UT Austin students will not need to submit a UT Austin transcript to the College of Pharmacy. You will need to submit transcripts from institutions that you attended that UT Austin does not have already. We will provide further updates and instructions once offers are provided in March 2016.
