Applicant Code of Conduct Policy
The Assistant Dean of Admissions and Student Affairs reserves the right to adjust an applicant’s admissions status, disqualify an applicant from admissions consideration or rescind an offer of admission at Roseman should the applicant violate the PharmCAS Applicant Code of Conduct and/or demonstrate a lack of professionalism during the admissions process.
Academic Forgiveness Policy
An applicant can request that the Admissions Office use only your grades from the last five years to calculate overall and prerequisite grade point averages (GPAs).
Example: If you apply for fall 2010, and request academic forgiveness (to request this, you must check the appropriate box on the Roseman application), grades before January 1, 2005 will not be included in the calculation of your overall and math and science prerequisite GPAs. Your credit hours are still valid and any degrees you have received will still be counted.
However, applicants making this request must have completed five of the eight math and science prerequisites by the end of December and all 10 required prerequisites, including English and Speech, within the last five years.

Student Selection Criteria
When the Admissions Office at the College of Pharmacy at Roseman University receives a complete application, they utilize the following criteria to determine which applicants are invited to interview:
- Overall GPA
- Science and Math prerequisite GPA
- PCAT score or Bachelor’s, Master’s, or other Doctoral level degree
Note: Local residents of Nevada or Utah will be given additional preference in the admission selection process. Roseman University accepts applicants from all fifty states and abroad. Tuition and fees are the same for ALL students.
An applicant’s academic achievements will determine if they are invited to an on-campus interview. The College of Pharmacy typically interviews until April. Applicants are interviewed by a panel that consists of one faculty member and one student from the College of Pharmacy.
Through various questions, the panel assesses the applicant’s strengths and abilities in their:
- Understanding and motivation for pharmacy
- Problem solving
- Working within a team
- Oral communication skills
Based on a comprehensive review of an applicant’s academic achievements and interview assessment, the Admissions Office, with the Dean’s final approval, will offer admission to the most competitive candidates. Offers of admission can be made through August. A wait list may be maintained until the beginning of orientation.
Equal Opportunity Statement
Roseman College of Pharmacy seeks to admit a diverse student population with demonstrated academic competency and commitment to the profession of pharmacy. As such, we do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, age, religion, creed, disability, sexual orientation, or veteran status in any of our policies, practices, or procedures.
The Admissions Office will consider granting deferred admission in extenuating circumstances that would preclude an applicant from beginning classes at the start of the academic year. Requests for deferment will be considered on a case-by-case basis upon an admitted applicant’s written request.
An applicant who requests and is approved to defer admission is considered under obligation to enroll and attend the pharmacy program the following year. Applicants can only request to defer their offer of admission once and that deferral, if accepted, will only be valid for the next academic year.
Only applicants who accept an offer of admission and paid the tuition deposit will be considered for a deferral request. You will be required to sign an agreement contract certifying that you will not apply to, attend or hold a deferment at another College or School of Pharmacy. Violations of this contract will result in the deferment being revoked.
Deferral requests must be made no later than July 19th.
